This past April I had the honor of speaking at The Voices of Godly Women Conference in North Carolina which took place at Williams Chapel Church. I presented with other national HIV/AIDS Activist Linda H. Scruggs and Stephanie Brown. Linda Scruggs was diagnosed with HIV over 22 year ago, Ms. Scruggs serves as the HIV/AIDS community as an AIDS educator, activist and national and community leader. Stephanie Brown was featured in MTV’s World AIDS Day documentary special “I am Positive” and is taking part in Greater Than AIDS new campaign with Alicia Keys WE ARE EMPOWERED which reaches out to women about HIV/AIDS.
The Voices of Godly women conference ended with a luncheon where all the women wore hats and gloves, it was great to see a church address the issue of HIV/AIDS. I hope in the future more churches will follow in addressing HIV/AIDS as it is a growing health issue within the African American community.
