Date:3/15/2010

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., March 15 /PRNewswire/ -- New Jersey Women and AIDS Network (NJWAN), the only statewide female-specific AIDS service organization, has launched "I Stand With NJWAN", a year-long HIV action and awareness campaign intended to mobilize families, individuals, corporations, social service agencies, and the faith-based community to band together and stand up for the lives of women in NJ. At 35%, New Jersey has the highest estimated proportion of women living with AIDS in the nation. To learn more about the campaign, please visit http://njwan.org/campaign/index.html or call NJWAN at 732-846-4462.

Monique Howard, NJWAN executive director warns that, "No longer can we exist in silos.  We have to work together, shoulder-to-shoulder, within our neighborhoods, city and state to protect ourselves from HIV disease and our loved ones.  The silence, shame and the stigma associated with HIV must not continue to destroy our families."

  4. Attend A Round Table Discussion – Participate in local small group discussions organized by NJWAN and contribute ideas and strategies to help end the silence.
