|We will be partnering with POCAAN (People of Color Against Aids Network) during our workshops on June 3 and 10.
|Established in 1987, POCAAN is a multicultural, multi-social service agency serving marginalized communities in Seattle and greater King County, including Latino, Black, Asian/Pacific Islander, and Native Americans. For many years our work has been rooted in HIV/AIDS prevention, but it has grown with the understanding that related issues such as substance abuse, incarceration, homelessness, sexually transmitted diseases, racism, sexism, and homophobia also contribute to community marginalization and health disparities.
