Promoting Health and Human Rights in Partnership with the Stephen Lewis Foundation

Join us Wednesday, April 3rd from 7:00-8:00 PM for a special presentation by the Stephen Lewis Foundation for OPSEU/SEFPO members!  They will showcase our impactful partnership and how you can get involved and directly contribute to their mission.

Register for the free event below. A Zoom link will be sent to you separately.

Significant strides have been made in HIV prevention and treatment, but in a world marked by intersecting inequalities, not everyone is experiencing the benefits of these advancements. In sub-Saharan Africa, AIDS persists as a leading cause of death, and women, girls, and LGBTIQ communities bear a disproportionate burden due to the inequities they face.

For over 20 years, the Stephen Lewis Foundation (SLF) has provided responsive and flexible support to organizations across sub-Saharan Africa led by and for the communities most affected by the HIV epidemic.  With support from the SLF, these grassroots organizations are providing holistic support to advance health and human rights in their communities, including healthcare, education, counselling, legal assistance, and leadership training. They offer income-generating opportunities to people facing discrimination and exclusion in traditional labour sectors. They also help community members collectively organize to claim their human rights at local, national, and international levels.

OPSEU/SEFPO has supported the SLF since 2009 to advance their mission. Through our partnership, we are helping grassroots organizations in sub-Saharan Africa challenge colonial systems and combat discrimination and injustice on multiple fronts. Their impact extends globally and warrants solidarity from around the world.

This event is open to all members. If interested, please complete the form below and the Zoom link will be sent to you. If you are unsure of your local number, please contact 1.800.268.7376 for assistance.

Please submit your interest no later than 11:59pm on Tuesday, April 2, 2024. If you have any questions for the SLF, please submit them to equity@opseu.org

In Solidarity,
