In the second of our six-week video series founder Dázon Dixon Diallo, MPH, discusses 30 years of HIV/AIDS in the U.S. In this video, Ms. Dixon Diallo talks about starting SisterLove, a reproductive justice organization for women, with a focus on HIV/AIDS, in 1989 and how she found herself, "at the right place, at the right time and facing the opportunity to make the right decision to be involved."

Ms. Dixon Diallo asks all of us in the HIV community to, “stay focused, literally thinking about where do we want to go, when does end, and what does it look likes when it ends so that we can really bring this vision into today, so it won’t take another 30 years.”

We encourage you to listen to her story and insights about the plight of women and HIV, in general, and particularly among women of color, in the U.S. and around the world.
