#WE_SPEAK 2013 Summer Advocacy Institute

#WE_SPEAK 2013 Summer Advocacy Institute
The WE SPEAK Summer Advocacy Institute graduated newly recruited members from the eight week program.  They were provided with the skills to mobilize peers to speak up and out on issues that put them at risk for HIV infection.  WE SPEAK members were trained on advocacy skills and techniques to create a campaign to engage their peers 
in their HIV prevention and advocacy efforts.

Upon completion of the Advocacy Institute, WE SPEAK members will spend the year working on issues and campaigns discussed during the Institute at weekly meetings held on Friday evenings during the academic year.
