Robert Carr Memorial Lecture Getting to Zero Bullshit. Calling HIV-related Stigma what it is: Racism, Classism, Misogyny
ICASO, in partnership with Futures Group, Human Rights Watch and Caribbean Vulnerable Communities Coalition invite you to a satellite session at AIDS 2012 to celebrate and honor Robert Carr’s legacy.
In May 2011, Robert Carr, a tireless leader in the AIDS response passed away. Robert worked for years to find genuine solutions to the AIDS pandemic. He always advocated that comprehensive responses to AIDS must address issues of vulnerability and stigma. As a leader, Robert knew the importance of dialogue as central to building consensus across constituencies, to revealing our fundamental similarities, and dissolving our prejudices.
Robert believed passionately in the need to address the underlying structural issues that continue to deny people their basic rights. In particular, he demanded that AIDS responses challenge the continued marginalization and vulnerability to HIV of men who have sex with men, transgender people, sex workers, and people who use drugs.
Come and listen to keynote speaker Stephen Lewis give the first Robert Carr Memorial Lecture. Join advocates from around the world discussing how vulnerability and stigma impact the AIDS response. Celebrate and honor Robert’s legacy with colleagues and friends.
