Make a Bold Statement for Women and Girls Today

Every 47 minutes, a woman in the United States will be diagnosed with HIV. More than likely, she will be a woman of color. For too many women impacted by HIV, silence and stigma continues to keep us bound.
Today, on National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, we ask that you take action today in these simple ways:

  • Get tested today, because knowing your status is priceless. Don’t know where to go? Visit HIVTest.gov to find out the closest location to you.
  • Share HIV statistics across your social media networks. Follow us on Twitter (@redpumpproj) for key information.
  • Upload a picture in your red shoes to the Red Pump Facebook page, as well as on your social media. Be sure to tag it with #RocktheRedPump.
  • Donate to support the efforts of Red Pump using our fundraising link
  • Post the #RocktheRedPump campaign graphic to your social media to spread the word!

With every tweet, blog post, and photo, you are telling the world in your own stylish way that you aren’t afraid to talk about HIV and that you stand with your sisters who have been impacted by this disease.
 
That is beautiful. That is powerful. That is bold. 
In red pumps,
Luvvie and Karyn
