PNBC PARTNERS WITH THEvNAACP ON THE BLACK CHURCH & HIV
In 2012, the NAACP National Health Department presented its Black Church & HIV: The Social Justice Imperative Initiative at the Annual Session of the Progressive National Baptist Convention, Inc. (PNBC) in Detroit, MI. The Black Church & HIV: The Social Justice Imperative is a three-pronged initiative that seeks to integrate HIV as a social justice issue by training faith leaders, building relationships with religious denominations and engaging seminarians. This launch prompted PNBC to present a resolution to integrate HIV as a social justice issue within its institutional structure. In January 2014, this resolution was ratified as a formal part of the PNBC Denomination highlighting the partnership between the PNBC and the NAACP National Office. This partnership includes the participation in the NAACP’s Annual “Day of Unity” which is an opportunity for faith leaders to address HIV/AIDS in their church through a sermon, HIV testing, church announcements or raise awareness about the burden of HIV in the African-American community. In 2015, the NAACP HIV Program Manager, Rev. Keron R. Sadler, will be conducting a training at the PNBC Annual Convention in Dallas, TX. This is an opportunity for you to receive a wealth of information that will not only save souls, but save lives. The Progressive National Baptist Convention, Inc. is committed to this HIV social justice movement towards an AIDS-free generation.
