      Empowerment Conference 2019: Living Our Best Lives!

      Join us for the 26th annual Empowerment Conference!!! This year's conference is all about Living Our Best Lives and will feature Tiommi Luckett, the Communications Assistant at Positive Women’s Network – USA, as our plenary speaker! Identifying as a Black, binary trans woman living with HIV, Ms. Luckett’s advocacy has evolved from deeply personal conditions to include the greater struggle of dismantling racism, anti-blackness, anti-trans attitudes and policies, xenophobia, misogyny and socioeconomic and systemic oppression. Honoring this year's theme, the conference will offer sessions on homeownership, empowering communities of color, financial planning, healthy relationships, and sex positivity! While Empowerment is one of the only conferences for PLWH, all are welcome; allies, health professionals, and those interested in learning more. Join us for an engaging day filled with learning, skill-building, fellowship, and reflection. You don't want to miss this! Register online now!
