Addressing Sexual Health Inequities in the Black Community
The mission of this event is to increase awareness of the structural and societal inequities that lead to sexual health disparities in the black community. Participants will discuss systemic racism, homophobia and sexism that have led to the mistreatment of the black community in health care, stigmatization and shaming of sexuality and restricted access to sexual health services and resources. Some specific topics that will be discussed are the Tuskegee Experiment, the HIV/AIDS epidemic, equitable and accessible resources and empowerment for reclaiming your individual sexuality and sexual health. This event is hosted by UIS Gender & Sexuality Student Services.
