Today marks six years since our founder left this world. We remember @elizabethtaylor as a selfless Humanitarian with a of gold. ETAF will continue to carry on your work until we see an end to the #AIDS pandemic. #RememberingElizabeth
Today is National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness day and #ETAF is honored to spotlight our collaboration with @greaterthanaids. ETAF helps support the inspiring stories of the Greater Than AIDS Empowered project where women use the power of their voices to remove stigma, empower their community to end HIV/AIDS, and combat urgent issues like intimate partner violence (IPV). One in three women experiences intimate partner violence. For women with #HIV, it is one in two. IPV, including physical violence, emotional abuse and/or controlling behavior, is a major issue for many women in the U.S. Less often discussed is the concerning connection with HIV. #BeBoldForChange#NWGHAAD#Empowered
#ETAF is proud to support @mothers2mothers in its 15-year anniversary! They're helping us making paramount strides reaching 90-90-90 in Malawi with their services. While tremendous progress has been made over the last decade to eliminate pediatric AIDS, more than 400 babies are still infected with HIV globally each day. About 75% of these children live in sub-Saharan Africa, and most acquire HIV from their mothers during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. M2M trains, employs, and empowers local mothers living with HIV, called Mentor Mothers, as frontline healthcare workers in understaffed health centers and within communities. #BeBoldForChange#NWGHAAD
Agape International Missions was founded on the ground in Cambodia in 1988 as a humanitarian aid and church planting organization. Since 2005, their ministries have focused on ending of child sex trafficking. #ETAF is privileged to fund AIM providing HIV medical care for rescued girls who are living with #HIV. #BeBoldForChange#NWGHAAD
In partnership with Global AIDS Interfaith Alliance (GAIA), an #ETAF grant to Grassroot Soccer - Malawi helped initiate a girls soccer league as a method of delivering #HIV prevention messages. Grassroot Soccer is an adolescent health organization that leverages the power of soccer to educate, inspire, and mobilize at-risk youth in developing countries to overcome their greatest health challenges, live healthier, more productive lives, and be agents for change in their communities. Their programs seek to address the unique needs of girls and young women, challenge negative gender norms, decrease gender-based violence, and engage boys and young men in creating more gender-equitable communities. @grassrootsoccer#BeBoldForChange#NWGHAAD#GirlPower (photo credit: Quinn Tivey) @quinntivey
Today we celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the globe. We are so lucky to have a founder who embodied female empowerment. Through ETAF’s program funding, every day we fight for a more inclusive and gender equal world. Globally, women account for 50% of people living with #HIV and HIV/AIDS is the leading cause of death of women of reproductive age. We can change this. Join us and take action. #BeBoldForChange#IWD2017#GirlPower
An #ETAF grant to Girl Child Counseling Women Group in Eldoret, Kenya is curbing the spread of #HIV and #AIDS in the Mutunda area by providing door-to-door couples counseling and testing services. The GCCWG implemented a Couples Peer Health Educators workshop that brought together couples from 10 different villages in the Mutunda region and informed them on the importance of couples testing and counseling, prevention methods, treatment, and seeking care services. #BeBoldForChange#NWGHAAD
In honor of International Women’s and Girl’s Day (March 8th) and National Women’s and Girl’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (March 10th), #ETAF is spotlighting incredible women-focused programs we help fund and support in our back yard and around the world. #BeBoldForChange#NWGHAAD
#ETAF is honored to support the urgent work of Woman's Hospital in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. According to the CDC, Baton Rouge ranks second among major U.S. metro areas for new #HIV cases and first in new HIV cases among women ages 13-54. Established in 2002, Women’s Mother-to-Child HIV Transmission Prevention program at the Women’s Hospital focuses on preventing the transmission of HIV from mothers to newborns during birth. With this program, the chance of transmission can be decreased to less than two percent. @womanshospital
My mother died of AIDS related complications when I was 22 years old. A month or so before I wrote In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue ...
25 years ago Elizabeth Taylor wore a Red Ribbon on her white gown to bring awareness to the fight against the epidemic alongside Paul Newman as they presented the Best Picture Award in 1992.
I had the great honor of representing my mother and Mrs Taylor by wearing that same 25 year old Red Ribbon on my white suit to continue to bring awareness and solidarity to the fight against AIDS. #academyawards#endAIDS#allloveallpride#redribbon#moonlit
Huge congratulations to Best Actor winner Casey Affleck! Thank you for accepting your Academy Award while wearing the very same AIDS ribbon pin that @elizabethtaylor wore when she accepted the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the 65th #academyawards. #Oscars#AIDSAwareness
Kimberly Steward, producer of Manchester By The Sea, is on her way to the #Oscars wearing one of Elizabeth Taylor's red ribbons! #HIV#awareness
Tonight's #Oscars mark the 25th anniversary of the Red AIDS Ribbon making its first appearance at the #academyawards. Taylor and Paul Newman famously wore the simple 6-inch ribbon to present the award for best picture in 1992, showing the world it was ok to care about people living with #HIV and #AIDS. @elizabethtaylor#repost#oscars

This guard writes many of the songs by #ZombaPrisonProject. The band made up mostly by inmates at the Zomba Prison in Malawi gained some international notoriety when one of their songs was nominated for a #Grammy last year. Many of the songs they sing are about HIV/AIDS and stigma. Photo taken by @elizabethtaylor's grandson, Quinn Tivey.
#ETAF would like to give a shout-out to one of our amazingly dedicated supporters, Leslie Fine. A regular donor, she does everything she can to help us continue to deliver life-saving care and services to people affected by #HIV/AIDS around the world. Here is a short but powerful spotlight about why Leslie loves Elizabeth Taylor and how she was inspired to join the fights against #AIDS: "I had really not heard the words AIDS until 1985, when Elizabeth Taylor decided to use her celebrity to find a cure for this terrible virus. No one else wanted anything to do with AIDS, not even to mention its name. When everyone said 'no', Elizabeth went the opposite way. She had one hell of a fight on her hands. The first thing she talked about was education and to this day, after all her tireless work, education is still the most important thing to help to end AIDS. Because I love Elizabeth Taylor as much as I do, I want to honor her memory and one way I found to do that is to donate what ever I could each month to her wonderful foundation. This passionate, caring and loving woman set up this foundation up so that every cent donated went straight to the cause.
She worked so hard and did so much, it is now up to us to help. Donations are one of the most important things we can do, this and read everything you can get your hands on about AIDS and all the strides that are being made. We also need to be helpful and caring to the people who have HIV and AIDS. There is still such a stigma attached to this disease that it doesn't allow people to live as normal a life as they should be able to.
We have come so far but there is so much more to do. Without Elizabeth Taylor we would probably still have a huge lack of medications and education. I wonder if she even knew how many hundreds of thousands of lives she has saved. That magnificent woman has left us a legacy of love and a legacy to help the less fortunate. Remember, AIDS does not discriminate. God Bless you Elizabeth and Rest In Peace. I love and miss you more every single day."
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s work will never be forgotten. #MLK
"In many ways, I owe it to the Capital City AIDS Fund for the opportunities and academic successes I've had. As a person living with HIV and an emancipated foster youth, life has not been the easiest. The Helen Veress-Mitchell Scholarship Fund through CCAF not only allowed me to make my move to southern California, but also to put down a deposit on a living space, cover academic supplies and books, and some money to spare. I am excited to continue my education, looking forward to my studies and achieving my educational goals amidst life's obstacles. I hope to see this scholarship continue to grow and positively impact lives as it has mine." Text LOVE to 27722 and $10 will be donated to help #ETAF continue to support people like Andrew and organizations providing direct services to people living with HIV.
