World AIDS Day Conference
Posted: November 29, 2007
On Saturday, Dec. 1, the Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice and the UT School of Law will sponsor the World AIDS Day Conference in collaboration with student groups' initiatives on the UT campus. This one-day conference is from 10:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. in the Eastwoods Room of the Texas Union.
There will be panels addressing the following themes:
- Global Awareness and Advocacy
- Gay and Lesbian Concerns about AIDS
- Women and HIV/AIDS
- Stereotypes, Stigmas, and Shame about HIV/AIDS.
Each panel will consist of a UT faculty member, an undergraduate representative of a UT student organization working on issues related to HIV/AIDS awareness, and a local community representative of an HIV/AIDS advocacy group, outreach agency, or health provider.
The organizers envision this event as an opportunity to build a university-wide public awareness around HIV/AIDS, thereby contributing to community and institution building. They also hope to make an intellectual contribution to related pedagogical and activist agendas.
The conference is free and open to the public and lunch will be provided.
