Pre-USCHA Black Women’s Summit

Pre-USCHA Black Women’s Summit

Join Us for a Pre-USCHA Black Women’s Summit

NMAC is convening a full day pre-USCHA Black Women’s Summit on Tuesday, September 5.  We’re inviting 200 Black cis and trans women to take part in a cultural journey that will highlight the topics that intersect in the lives of Black women impacted by HIV and the tools needed to positively impact our communities. The day will include inspirational keynote addresses, group work and opportunities for intergenerational exchange.  We are bringing these Black Queens in all their diversity together to center mind, body, and spirit through cultural practices and exercises and open dialogue about their journeys in womanhood. The Summit is open to Black cis and trans women 18 and older.

  • Goal: To celebrate Black women and their contributions to the HIV movement.
  • Objective: Create a cultural space for Black women to share and learn from each other.

There is no fee to register for the Pre-Summit and there is a limited number of scholarship opportunities available to attend the full USCHA conference. Apply now.  To achieve the goals of the Summit, participation is limited to 200 women.
