Where We Stand

Pride Stigma

The public policy program of the Minnesota AIDS Project is a leader in advocating for the rights of all people affected by HIV. Our public policy program strives to meet our mission by advancing policy initiatives related to HIV prevention and services in these three key areas:

  • Advancing HIV prevention initiatives
  • Increasing access to HIV services
  • Protecting existing HIV services and rights

Our public policy program conducts its work through three main program goals:

  • Community organizing: Building an educated and mobilized network of advocates at the community level
  • Legislative advocacy: Advancing a legislative agenda that forwards proactive legislative policy and protects existing rights and service levels
  • Coalitions and partnerships: Positioning the Minnesota AIDS Project as a policy leader in the HIV community and on related policy and advocacy coalitions
