In recognition of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, the Women’s Advisory Board invites you to join us virtually for the 2021 Women’s Health and Activism Summit. This year’s theme, Reclaiming My Power, focuses on the WAB’s call to action of awakening power to create, nurture, and transform, and will incorporate discussions around communicating your needs in intimate relationships, wellness, mental health, combxploitation, and reproductive justice. The summit’s panel discussion will feature women sharing their ideas and experiences around wellness, visibility, and accountability.

The summit will feature keynote speakers Leymah Gbowee, 2011 Nobel Peace Laureate, and Liberian peace activist, Jamilah Lemieux, leading millennial feminist thinker and renowned cultural critic and writer with a focus on issues of race, gender, and sexuality, and Dr. Anisha Gandhi, Director of Racial Equity and Social Justice initiatives for the NYC Health Department’s Bureau of HIV.
