Students Against Stigma
I, Carrie Foote, a woman living with HIV for nearly 30 years, teach a course every fall called AIDS and Society in which we examine the Social Drivers of the HIV/AIDS Pandemic. As part of the course, Students complete service learning activities, one of which includes forming a team for the Indiana AIDS Walk to raise funds and volunteer for the event.
This year I am excited to be joined by my colleague Alicia Suarez from Depauw University Sociology, and her students; she is teaching a similar course there.
Aimee Zoeller from IUPUC Sociology will also join us again and participate with some of her students
So exciting as we expect to have one of our biggest teams ever!!! Whoho!
We are asking for your help! Consider joining out team "STUDENTS Against STIGMA" and/or sponsoring a student or the team. The monies raised will help people living with HIV/AIDS in multiple ways. The goal of the Indiana AIDS Walk is to raise money for the Gregory R. Powers Direct Emergency Financial Assistance (DEFA) fund. DEFA provides funds for emergency shelter, utilities, food, medicine, transportation and other critical needs of those living with HIV/AIDS.
