Minutes with Jah: Awareness of HIV Criminalization

HIV is Not a Crime Day Awareness Day is recognized every year on February 28th. First observed by the Sero Project alongside the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, this day is an opportunity to shed light on instances where people are being criminalized by their HIV status.1

Jah says: "On February 28th, we bring awareness to HIV criminalization. For anyone to be arrested for their HIV status is wrong. We must continue to fight to overturn these stigmatizing laws."
