HIV/AIDS Awareness

Our Chapter, working in concert with other community organizations and the Health Department, provides education and testing opportunities for people in the Memphis community.  Our educational and advocacy efforts are designed to share information in hopes of removing the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS so that people will feel comfortable about being tested and receiving treatment if necessary. 

Domestic Violence Initiative

The Chapter works with and supports local Domestic Violence advocates in order to bring awareness to victims (predominately women) of domestic violence and what needs to be done to support and assist women and their children as they fight to survive abusive and dangerous relationships so that they can establish a better life for themselves and their family.
