You are invited to a free online event that includes a screening of HIV: Healing Inner Voices on Dec 3, 2020; 11 AM – 1 PM Pacific time.
In HIV: Healing Inner Voices, the lived experiences and voices of eight diverse Indigenous people living with HIV combine storytelling and the healing power of cultural teachings. As an educational tool this peer-led documentary project has the potential to decrease experiences of HIV stigma and discrimination by connecting participants and partner organizations to community and to culture.
Through the support of Drawing Wisdom, the Inspirit Foundation and Reach 3.0 we are hosting a VIP screening and virtual talking circle for stakeholders. Please join us as we explore ideas of how we can deliver this peer-led project to our communities, organizations, service providers, community members, healthcare professionals and ALL who are affected by HIV/AIDS.
This film and panel discussion can be used as a tool to bring awareness of the stigma and discrimination of HIV/AIDS within all of our communities. This event will be led by the Peers who created it and will also include an Elder and guest panelist Gabriel George (the film’s music creator.)
