End Unjust HIV Criminalization – A Community Dialogue on June 14, 2018

End Unjust HIV Criminalization – A Community Dialogue:

  • Thursday June 14, 2018

  • 6 to 7:30 p.m.

  • at the Chelsea Hotel, 33 Gerrard Street West, Toronto.

Canada (and Ontario) has one of the highest levels of criminalizing people living with HIV in the world, but communities have been mobilizing to resist and the tide may be turning.

What has been achieved, and how? What work still needs to be done? What lies ahead for resisting HIV criminalization in Ontario following the provincial election? Join leading activists including people living with HIV, community organizations and human rights advocates for this community dialogue.  Désolé, cet événement aura lieu en anglais seulement.
