Fellowships for 10 Young Nonprofit Leaders Working to End HIV in Hardest-Hit Areas
The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation's HIV 360° Fellowship Program, made possible with the generous support of the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF), provides individualized training and support to innovative young professionals and nonprofit leaders as they tackle the challenges facing communities hit hardest by HIV, including Black and Latino gay and bisexual men, transgender women of color, and LGBTQ people living in the U.S. South.
"We are honored to welcome ten talented young leaders to the second class of HRC's HIV 360° Fellowship Program," said Mary Beth Maxwell, HRC Senior Vice President for Programs, Research and Training. "Through their dedication, creativity, and hard work, these activists are changing lives, expanding opportunity, and combatting the stigma and discrimination facing so many people living with and affected by HIV in the U.S. We look forward to working with them over the coming year and into the future as they continue to speak out, act up, and bring an end to the HIV and AIDS epidemic once and for all."
"The Elton John AIDS Foundation is proud to support HRC's second class of HIV 360° Fellows," said Scott Campbell, EJAF Executive Director. "This impressive, diverse group of leaders has a vast amount of professional and real world experience and represents viewpoints from across the country. The future of LGBTQ rights and HIV activism is brighter because of their commitment and dedication."
