Harnessing the Strength of Faith-Based Organizations (FBOs)

For years, African American FBOs have been vital pillars of refuge and healing within their communities. We’ve partnered with the Louisiana Freedmen Missionary Baptist General Association to share the word about the importance of HIV screening and prevention and set up health fairs where people can get tested for free. This project aims to empower clergy, congregants, and clinicians in New Orleans by providing crucial education and testing. Watch the webinar to learn more about this project and how you can make a real difference.
