The United States elects new President and the 30 for 30 Campaign’s commitment to the health of women forges forward

Today, the United States of America encountered its fifth election in history in which the majority of voters saw their presidential candidate lose the presidency. While some feel frustrated that this means the will of the people did not prevail today, representative democracy will press on in the United States and as such, the 30 for 30 Campaign will continue to advance the values that are integral to the health of women and a flourishing democracy. In a climate where women have been attacked, undervalued and not heard, the 30 for 30 Campaign will continue to fight to safeguard and expand the rights of women, pushing for policies that protect their health, well being and autonomy. Our work continues as we bring voice and visibility to communities that are vulnerable and marginalized. We will keep doing our part to make sure the needs of women living with and affected by HIV are addressed in the national response. The work continues; there are more seasons to come. We are organized and ready to go. Please join us as we move forward.
