Announcing the 2019 LEARN Partners: Healing Justice Cohort

The SUSTAIN Wellbeing COMPASS Coordinating Center has selected 6 organizations to be a part of the LEARN (Leading with Education, Advocacy & Resistance with our Neighbors) Healing Justice cohort! This shared learning opportunity focuses specifically on healing justice in the context of the HIV epidemic of the Deep South through community building, education, and capacity building.

Selected organizations represent 5 of the 9 Deep South states – Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, North Carolina and Texas, each encompassing a broad scope of experience and expertise in the HIV field of the South, and bringing an innovative, dynamic and refreshing perspective to the work. Partners will virtually convene on a monthly basis over the course of the next 6 months to connect, learn and implement their new knowledge through a project at their organization. Stay tuned for more updates throughout our journey!
