2017 PSA - UNITY IN COMMUNITY

 

2016 PSA Version 1 - GUEST SPEAKER STEFAN LESSARD

[TEXT]: MY NAME IS STEFAN LESSARD. I AM A SON, A FATHER, A MUSICIAN IN THE DAVE MATTHEWS BAND, AND I AM A PROUD MOHAWK MAN. IF WE ARE TO HAVE AN AIDS FREE GENERATION FOR NATIVE PEOPLE, WE MUST OVERCOME THE STIGMA OF HIV. STIGMA SURROUNDING HIV TESTING AND THE FEAR OF DISCLOSURE OF HIV STATUS IS HURTING OUR PEOPLE. STIGMA KEEPS US SILENT AND THAT SILENCE CAN KILL US. WE CAN CHANGE THIS! WE MUST SUPPORT OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS WHO ARE HIV POSITIVE AND WE MUST SPEAK LOUDLY ABOUT LIVING HEALTHY!

H-I-V: HEARING INDIGENOUS VOICES: UNITING THE BOLD VOICES OF AMERICAN INDIANS, ALASKA NATIVES AND NATIVE HAWAIIANS. CONQUER STIGMA! GET TESTED! KNOW YOUR STATUS!

2015 PSA Version 2

[TEXT]: MARCH THE 20TH IS THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING, IT MARKS A TIME OF RENEWAL FOR MANY NATIVE PEOPLE. IT IS ALSO THE DAY THAT WE HONOR NATIONAL NATIVE HIV/AIDS AWARENESS DAY. THE TRUTH IS, THAT WE REALLY DON'T KNOW HOW MANY NATIVE PEOPLE ARE LIVING WITH HIV. NO ONE KNOWS, BECAUSE WE ARE NOT BEING COUNTED. REPORTED SURVEILLANCE RATE ON NATIVE PEOPLE ARE VERY INACCURATE. WHAT WE DO KNOW, IS THAT OUR NATIVE PEOPLE HAVE DISMALLY HIGH RATES OF SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES, TEEN PREGNANCY, HEPATITIS C, AND SUBSTANCE USE. THAT MEANS THAT TOO MANY OF US ARE HAVING SEX WITHOUT PROTECTION AND SEX WITHOUT PROTECTION MEANS WE HAVE A HIGHER RISK FOR HIV. THIS AWARENESS DAY IS A TIME TO RENEW YOUR COMMITMENT TO YOURSELF TO KEEP YOUR SEXUAL EXPERIENCES SAFE. EMPOWER YOURSELF BY KNOWING YOUR STATUS. EARLY DETECTION OF HIV ENSURES A LONG HEALTHY LIFE. EDUCATE YOURSELF, EDUCATE YOUR HEALTH PROVIDER ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF TESTING AND PREVENTION, AND MOST IMPORTANT, TAKE THE TEST. FOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT WWW.NNHAAD.ORG.
