National HIV Testing Day – June 27th

More than 3,000 American Indians and Alaska Natives have been infected by HIV. Think you’re not at risk? Think again – Half of new HIV infections occur among teens and young adults!

Here’s what you can do:

  • Host a dinner with community members to discuss HIV, STDs and other issues affecting teens and their health.
  • Organize a Wall of Moccasins in a prominent place, to honor Native people who have died from HIV/AIDS.
  • Organize a testing event for your school or clinic:
  • Organize a Benefit Concert, Open Mic Night, or Poetry Slam for your cause
  • Watch and discuss videos from Native STAND, or create and share your own HIV prevention videos:
