What an inspiring evening last night at the @unaidsglobal annual gala. Held at Design Miami/Basel, the event paid tribute to @elizabethtaylor's legacy of activism. Her grandson @quinntivey is pictured here with Nelson Mandela's grandson, Ndaba, next to UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé and ETAF's Managing Director, Joel Goldman. ETAF is committed to UNAIDS 90-90-90 goals. #AIDSisnotover#UNAIDSgala
Today we took Sacramento by storm and brought the fight for HIV and LGBTQ equality to the halls of the California State Capitol! We need to transform laws that specifically target people living with HIV. We can prosecute or prevent HIV but we can do both! #HIVIsNotACrime#LGBTDay

Elizabeth Taylor’s most cherished role was Mom. Thanks to our founder, #ETAF is able to support programs for mothers living with #HIV all around the world. #HappyMothersDay

On this day in 1986: Elizabeth Taylor, then National Chairman of amfAR, makes history when she testifies in front of members of the Senate Committee on Appropriations. Speaking to the need for greater investments in HIV/AIDS research, prevention and treatment, she shattered the silence and stigma around AIDS, bravely denouncing the government’s reaction to the AIDS epidemic as “a national scandal, a scandal of neglect, indifference, and abandonment.” #amfAR#OnThisDay#ThisDayInHistory#HIV#AIDS#ElizabethTaylor#ETAF

After a week of meetings for The Global Fund's 37th board mtg, representing @elizabethtayloraidsfoundation in the private foundations constituency, I spent the morning wandering around our host city: Kigali, Rwanda. What an amazing city with such lovely people. And such a tragic history but such appreciation of the present and optimism for the future. It is an honor and privilege to be able to participate in this work, which strives to break down health and social justice barriers around the world (and at home in the US!).
Since 2008, GAIA Elizabeth Taylor mobile clinics have treated 251,910 cases of malaria (roughly half under the age of five) and distributed 161,040 bed nets through our mobile health clinic program. Interactions between HIV and malaria infections can have serious consequences, particularly for pregnant women.

We are proud to announce our 3rd annual partnership with the Elton John AIDS Foundation (@ejaf)! Far too many people are denied equal rights & access to healthcare. This year, with increased funding from #ETAF, EJAF has awarded nearly $500,000 in grants to 9 organizations in the Southern United States, taking our fight to #endAIDS in the U.S. where it is needed most.
Jason and Jamie Tafoya have a powerful message to share about HIV criminalization. Last night, they shared an intimate story about their son being incarcerated due to his HIV status. Despite the fact that Anthony Tafoya (at the time 23-years old) was virally suppressed and did not transmit the virus, he was sentenced to 29 years in a California state prison. Their vulnerability is mobilizing people to stand up against discriminatory laws that target people living with HIV. Thank you Jason and Jamie for joining us last night! #HIVIsNotACrime (photos by: @seanblackphoto)
We couldn't have had our #HIVIsNotACrime event last night without the evening's sponsor, Tito's! Thank you for helping #ETAF host such an impactful evening. (photo by: @seanblackphoto)

Last night, with her son, daughter-in-law, and nephew by her side, Congresswoman Barbara Lee gave some empowering remarks to our guests at #ETAF's #HIVIsNotACrime event. We are so thankful for all she has done and continues to do for people living with HIV around the globe. (photo by @seanblackphoto)

Last night #ETAF hosted a delicious dinner and urgent dialogue around HIV Criminalization Reform at the Wilding Cran Gallery in Los Angeles. We are so thankful for Elizabeth Taylor's granddaughter and ETAF Ambassador, Naomi Wilding for generously donating her space for such a lovely evening filled with great food, inspiring conversation, and a participative community.
Many thanks to @repbarbaralee for sharing stories with us, to our airline sponsor @Delta, to our community partners Equality California, Los Angeles HIV Law and Policy Project, and The SERO Project, to Sean Black for his dedication and photographic talents, and to everyone who showed up willing to help fight this social injustice. #HIVIsNotACrime (photo by: @seanblackphoto)

1,000 young people ages 13-24 are diagnosed with #HIV every month in the U.S. Today is National Youth HIV/AIDS Awareness Day and #ETAF is grateful to spotlight our grantee partner The Grassroot Project, an organization based in D.C. that is making an incredible impact educating and empowering youth about HIV and sexual health through after-school sport programs. ETAF was honored to recently visit The Grassroot Project with a few of Elizabeth Taylor's grandchildren.
In the words of our founder, "To protect our future, we must support prevention programs above all for the young." #NYHAAD

The Florida delegation at #AIDSWatch met with Senator Marco Rubio, asking for his support for key legislation needed to help end the epidemic. Senator Rubio’s support is critical considering Florida leads the nation in new #HIV infections. ETAF and our friends National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) look forward to continuing engagement with the Senator's office. @marcorubiofla@nbjconthemove
“About 2/3 of U.S. states, territories, and possessions have HIV-specific criminal statutes used to prosecute people with HIV.” We are ready to fight for HIV Criminalization Reform!#knowthefacts#HIVIsNotACrime#AIDSWatch
Powerful story from Carrie Foote during the opening of #AIDSWatch shared with 600+ constituents who are here to help us make progress for people living with #HIV. We are inspired by the vulnerability of our community.
So honored to be the presenting sponsor of #AIDSWatch! Managing Director of ETAF Joel Goldman and Cornelius Baker helped kick off the event with eloquence and urgency. Next stop, the Hill! @joelgoldma1999
Overwhelmed in the best way possible this #AIDSWatch. We're making more progress for all people living with #HIV
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
