ICWNA presents a virtual series- Common Threads, hosted by Vanessa Johnson JD, Director of Ribbon Consulting. Common Threads is a project created by Vanessa intended to explore the “common threads” relating to trauma in womens’ lives that ultimately led them to an HIV diagnosis. Common Threads empowers women to claim ownership over their story and utilize it to advocate for themselves, as well as other women living with HIV. Through advocacy and empowerment we are able to move forward in togetherness in pursuit of ending the HIV epidemic.

*** Registration for Common Threads is open to all self-identifying women living with HIV; However, selected participants will be limited due to the nature of the work. Please take a moment to complete the application provided in the link below. Following submission, you will receive an email if selected.


Your gift will help ICW continue its important work supporting and empowering women and girls living with HIV around the world.
