Facts not Fear: A Night to Fight Stigma

Event Date:
September 24, 2019
6:00 pm The State Theater Penn State University 130 West College Avenue State College, PA 16801

This event features members of several highly stigmatized populations including sex workers, trans folks, and people living with HIV. Each will be talking about their reality and how stigma is harmful to the communities of which they are a part. There will be time for Q & A after each speaker, and the intention is to be an open dialogue rather than a lecture-style event. James is an accomplished stand-up comic, so his approach will be very different from Jessie and Dena’s, but will address the same issues of stigmatization.
