IAMHIV seeks to work toward the end of stigma by engaging people living with and affected by HIV in a viral photo campaign. This campaign intends to give a face to the virus - the familiar face of "everyday people just like you." AIDS Alabama and The Change Project believe the best way to combat stigma is through visibility. This unique partnership allows the campaign to become viral in 7 of the states with the highest HIV rates in the country. These states are Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Click here to support this campaign.

WorkOUT provides a safe space where LGBTQ people can improve or maintain their wellness, and educates trainers on their unique health needs. The program will also make physical fitness programs more accessible, featuring a sliding cost scale.
Shop Progress is a fundraising program of The Change Project. We believe that advocacy should be affordable and effective in its messaging. We have created a shop for people to buy screen printed shirts, bags, hoodies and more for affordable prices with a powerful message. All items are screen printed by the staff of The Change Project.
