Take Action!

Join the movement of AIDS Ambassadors!

More than 2,000 volunteers have become AIDS Ambassadors by educating themselves about HIV & AIDS, reaching out to people living with HIV or AIDS, raising funds for  HIV & AIDS projects, advocating for stronger laws related to AIDS, and brokering partnerships between congregations and HIV & AIDS organizations around the world.

Become a social justice advocate!

Learn about what’s happening in your part of the world and let your legislators know about your interest and concern. Attend district legislative meetings, write to your legislators, and voice your concerns for persons living with and affected by HIV or AIDS.

Become an informed and welcoming congregation!

Welcome everyone into your church, including people living with HIV or AIDS who are often marginalized and stigmatized by the community. By extending love and acceptance, transformation can happen. Then —

  • Encourage your pastor to preach on HIV and AIDS.
  • Sponsor an educational class on HIV and AIDS.
  • Explore how your congregation can become more involved in this ministry.
  • Invite your members to donate to the United Methodist Global AIDS Fund, an Advance Special of The United Methodist Church.  Funds support HIV & AIDS projects around the globe. 100% of your donation goes directly to projects.  Thank you!
