The Legacy Project

Why do we need your help?
HIV and race in America is a complex issue--and one that you as an informed member of the community may deal with everyday. While we search for a vaccine or a cure, today's HIV prevention tools must be supported in communities of color. As you continue that work, informed people like you also have the ability to make a significant difference in the success of our research. We need your support and approval to beat the conspiracy and HIV.

How can you help?
  • Help us bust the myths that have made this conspiracy so devastating by pointing people to fact-based information. You will find the most up- to-date information and links on our web site.

  • Encourage people to know their HIV status. Those who test negative may want to join an HIV vaccine study. You can find out about current trials at

  • Talk to us. Let us know what else we can do to support you. You can give us feedback at
