The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), an LGBT advocacy group, announced this year’s 10 young advocates for its HIV 360° Fellowship Program.
Founded by the HRC Foundation, an educational arm of HRC, with support from the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF), the program provides young people with nine months of support and training to address communities heavily impacted by HIV, including Black and Latino gay and bisexual men, transgender women of color and LGBT people living in the South.
According to an HRC press release, the fellows will receive mentorship and coaching in specific areas, such as communications, leadership and fundraising, to help strengthen their community-based organizations and initiatives.
