2008: Project UNSHACKLE: To create an ongoing national movement to expand HIV prevention justice in the criminal justice system

In May of 2008, Community HIV/AIDS Mobilization Project (CHAMP) in partnership with the John M. Lloyd Foundation will host the seventh annual John M. Lloyd AIDS Project at Stony Point Center.

CHAMP will launch Project UNSHACKLE (Uniting A Network on Sentencing and HIV/AIDS with Community Knowledge Leading our Efforts) at this conference. The Project brain trust will be a unique mix of formerly incarcerated people, grassroots leaders, researchers, HIV policy advocates, prison reform and other social justice organizers, coalition-building veterans and potential funders. The Project will draw expertise from these diverse areas of work and paradigms of understanding to create a fertile environment in which to:

  • Kickstart an ongoing national movement, building on and expanding existing networks for HIV prevention justice in and about the criminal justice system;
  • Provide practical guidance and tools for local, statewide and national stakeholders to initiate or expand prevention justice advocacy on incarceration issues; and
  • Evaluate the challenges and success of the project in policy change goals and leadership development.
