The Hivpoint Youth Advocacy Group brings the voice of young people into Hivpoint’s work. The Group joins us in advocating for equal comprehensive sexuality education.
Through the Youth Advocacy Group, we want to strengthen the participation of young people in Hivpoint’s advocacy work. The group has a say in the youth work we do at Hivpoint, they help plan statements and events and can impact the online and social media content in Hivpoint’s channels.
The group has participated in planning and organizing the following:
- Helsinki Pride Week 2020 program: “Seksitabuista avoimuuten” (From Sexual Taboos to Openness) -workshop and Poetry Jam Pride in cooperation with Helsinki Poetry Connection.
- World AIDS Day pop up event. Read Katya’s thoughts about the event here.
- Various articles, interviews and statements in local news outlets and Hivpoint’s website. Read Ali’s thoughts on sexual education from Yle (in Finnish) here.
Members of our Youth Advocacy Group in 2020: Ali, Kelly, Katya, Saara, Pauliina and Henni.
