October 02, 2017 • 12:30 PM • Law School 3037

Did you know that thirty-one states have HIV-specific criminal laws and twenty-five states criminalize one or more behaviors that pose a low or negligible risk for HIV transmission? Join If/When/How and OutLaw for a lunch discussion on criminalization of HIV and how it affects people living with HIV across the country and right here in North Carolina. Professor Carolyn McAllaster, Clinical Professor of Law, Founder of Duke Law's Health Justice Clinic and Director of the HIV/AIDS Policy Clinic, will speak about laws that inappropriately criminalize people living with HIV. Lee Storrow, Executive Director of North Carolina AIDS Action Network, will speak about local advocacy efforts to change North Carolina's laws. Lunch will be provided.
