Join speakers Jessica Lynn Whitbread and Mercy Lillian Gichuki in UTM's Blackwood Gallery on November 29th, from 12-2pm.

Tea Time: Mapping Informal Networks of Women Living with HIV is a transnational, community-building, cross-media project organized by artist, Jessica Lynn Whitbread that functions as an interpersonal space for women with HIV to network, self-advocate, and share their experiences. Mercy Lillian Gichuki, a UTM WGS graduate, will discuss her experience in the public health sector, working with women living with HIV, survivors of gender-based and sexual violence, newcomers, refugees, and non-status women. Gichuki works from an anti-oppressive, integrated feminist lens with a deep understand of the many intersections that women face.

This event is in partnership with PASAM and the International Community of Women Living with HIV-North America.
