Project Inform is a legendary HIV/hep C advocacy and education organization founded in the 1980s as a small smuggling operation that brought potentially life-extending drugs into the U.S. when then-president Ronald Reagan wouldn’t even say “AIDS.”
Today, the organization’s highly effective staff is at the forefront of the battle against stigma and healthcare injustice. This collaborative, ever-evolving work includes:
—Fighting for safe and legal spaces for people who use drugs to avoid overdose and access HIV and Hep C prevention and treatment services. (Anyone who doubts the urgency of this work need only search “drug overdose” on Youtube to see the cruel evidence. But WARNING: these videos are grim, and made by awful people who exploit and dehumanize those in pain.)
—Providing accurate, stigma-free educational resources and tools for HIV and hep C prevention and treatment.
—Leading essential legislation over and through the labyrinthine bureaucratic hurdles that stand in the way of ending the HIV and hep C epidemics in California—and that will have a ripple effect beyond.
