Team Friendly Advocacy Training: Fighting Stigma the Friendly Way
Become a Team Friendly Advocate!
Complete the Team Friendly Advocacy Training, then join us in our mission to:
*Eliminate the stigma of HIV,
*Minimize the rise of HIV transmission, and
*Maximize the quality of life of those affected by HIV.
TFDFW is championing the mission of Reducing the Stigma of HIV in the greater DFW (Dallas-Fort Worth) area through one-on-one conversations and interactive activities designed to recalibrate the community on HIV-Friendly conversations. We firmly believe that conversations lead to educational opportunities which directly result in more testing for HIV and increased quality of life for people living with HIV. All of these things collectively reduce HIV stigma and contribute to the decrease of HIV in our community.
After completing the advocacy training you will be equipped with the tools necessary to have one-on-one conversations with individuals from all walks of life to assist with any questions regarding HIV myths and/or concerns. The goal is not to change a person’s sexual engagement preferences, but to educate on risks and the options available to protect the health of both people with and without HIV.
We envision a world stigma-free of HIV.
