As you may know, HIV PJA’s structures and methods are informed by the rich history of LGBTQ struggles, AIDS activism and other social change movements in the United States and around the world.
We seek to build upon this legacy and win victories for justice through methods of organizing rooted in openness, transparency, and decentralized decision-making.
Last year, we organized our work around our 2012 Action Agenda, which was developed collectively with HIV PJA members.
This year, we are refining our goals, strategies and practices through “case statements” sketching out issues and our current/potential roles and collaborative activities in six areas: Economic Justice, Health Care and the AIDS Sector, HIV Prevention Policy, Mass Imprisonment and Criminalization, Network Structure and Methods, and Queer and Transgender Justice.
We’d appreciate your input into these statements, and we ask you to get it to us by Friday, February 1.

When writing our case statements, we used the following goals to craft the statements. Please use these goals to guide your comments and suggestions.
Case Statement Goals:
1. Build internal consensus on each issue.
2. Test the strength of our arguments and the impact of our actions.
3. Recruit leaders and partners to join us in our work on the issues.
4. Develop a foundation of information that will form the basis for project
related messaging and written communications materials.
Please submit your edits by Friday, February 1!
