Be a Supporting Organization by Sponsoring Women’s Registration Fees and/or Travel Costs to the Summit!

We ask that supporting organizations sponsor the participation of at least 2 women living with HIV to attend SPEAK UP! A National Summit for Women Living with HIV by covering their registration fees ($100 each) and transportation to and from Fort Walton Beach, FL. Supporting individuals, organizations and sponsors will be recognized and thanked during the Summit as well as in the Summit printed program and final report. PWN-USA also encourages supporting organizations to share materials at our Summit resource table, and will provide details on shipping materials at a later time.   Consider supporting participants who:
  • Have expressed an interest in increasing their involvement in advocacy
  • Represent heavily impacted and/or marginalized communities including women of color, women with low incomes, young women, transgender women, queer women, women with disabilities, women with immigrant or refugee experiences, and women who have experienced incarceration and/or criminalization.
  • Have opportunities and support to apply their knowledge and skills in their communities upon return from the Summit.
  • Your organization seeks to support and develop as leaders.
Each participant will share a hotel room with one other conference participant. PWN-USA will provide three nights of lodging (nights of Sept. 27, 28, and 29) and all meals and snacks during the Summit. If your organization would like to commit to sponsoring women to attend the Summit, but needs more time to identify and confirm with those participants, you may pay in advance to save the space for those participants and provide us with their names at a later date.   We hope you will consider becoming a supporting organization or a sponsor for the Summit. Please let us know at your earliest convenience if you are interested. If you have further questions, please e-mail or call Naina Khanna, Executive Director, at nkhanna@pwn-usa.org or 510.681.1169. Thank you for your continued support and sisterhood.
