The Michigan Positive Action Coalition (MI-POZ) is a group of people
living with HIV/AIDS who advocate for themselves and others living
with, or at risk for this disease. Our goal is to increase grassroots
leadership and participation by persons living with HIV/AIDS in legislative
education activities. Through training and capacity building activities,
MI-Poz will assist people living with HIV/AIDS in learning how to
advocate for themselves and impact our community by increasing legislators knowledge, accountability, and responsiveness to issues that impact
their constituents living with HIV/AIDS, leading to increased and
more comprehensive support of HIV care and prevention activities.
MI-Poz seeks to inform other PWAs (Persons with AIDS) and the community at large of legislative and health policy issues which impact HIV prevention and care and act as an independent voice of PLWHAs (Persons Living with HIV/AIDS) free from restrictions on our speech or activities as an informed, educated and empowered group of citizens.
MI-POZ is proud to be part of the Campaign to End AIDS (C2EA). Please join us!
