HIV Advocacy Training

MIA provides an array of individual level advocacy trainings focused on HIV/STI prevention, education and treatment; which includes condom negotiation, PrEP uptake and how to engage your provider.

The goals of these interventions are to increase motivation to reduce risks, and help men and women (including Trans* folks) to learn new skills to protect themselves and others by promoting condom use and increasing intentions to use condoms.

HIV/STD Testing & Counseling Referrals

MIA provides testing and treatment and referral for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV. Also we navigate individuals at High-Risk for HIV to PrEP (Pre- exposure prophylaxis), a once-a-day pill that prevents HIV transmission.

Our Liberation Table

To liberate is to "set something free." Our Liberation Table is an interactive and educational foundation to address pertinent issues which impact us daily. OLT is an interactive, discussion group about Reproductive Justice, HIV/AIDS, sexuality, pleasure and joy. This is a way of connect women from all walks of life and experiences to share. learn and grow with other. 

Our goal is to create a support system and a thriving network.
