ACCM will be screening the Because She Cares films over Zoom for this event along with facilitated discussions after!
The Because She Cares films are a poetic and cinematic re-telling of HIV service work as experienced by African, Caribbean and Black (ACB) women living with HIV who work in HIV/AIDS service and allied organizations (AASO). The 12 short films convey AASO employment as (un)caring work for ACB women living with HIV and its interconnections with the social determinants of health (e.g., income and social status, employment and working conditions, social supports, gender, culture, race/racism). In addition to the film screening with the researcher who headed the project, there will also be dialogues (i.e., Kitchen Table Talks) post-video to generate discussions on AASO employment, HIV and intersecting stigmas experienced by ACB immigrant women living with HIV.
It is open to anyone in the ACCM community (members, staff, volunteers, friends, etc. as it will be a film screening with the project leader and then discussion groups based on affinity groups – i.e. Black women living with HIV, staff members, etc. ). It’ll be over Zoom from 2-4 PM on March 25!
There will also be a Zoom yoga session after from 4:30-5:30 as a way to decompress as well (email Sam for the link).
