Know. Act. Rock.

Today, we are excited to kickoff Women’s History Month by launching our 9th Annual Rock the Red Pump® campaign. Since the beginning, supporters like you have tweeted, posted, and shared photos and information to help us educate the women in our lives and fight the stigma that continues to surround HIV. And, many of you have done so while rocking some fabulous red shoes.
However, #RocktheRedPump has always been more than a fashion statement. It is a call-to-action for women and girls to know the facts about HIV, take the appropriate steps (act), and own the decisions that we make regarding our bodies and our health (rock).
Know. Act. Rock.
It’s that simple. From now until National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (March 10), we will be mobilizing our networks to stand fiercely in the face of stigma, judgement, and shame and counter those forces with facts, support and sisterhood. And, we want you to join us! After all, the more, the powerful.
Here are some things that you can do to show your support. Others are listed here.

  • If you’re a blogger, sign up for the 2017 #RocktheRedPump Campaign!
  • Register your house of worship to participate in Red Pump Sunday on March 12.
  • Post educational statistics to your networks about HIV. (Need some starters? We have you covered.)
  • Download the square button below and post on Instagram (and Facebook and Twitter), including the hashtag #RocktheRedPump.
