Phoenix, AZ October 3, 2017 – Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS has named public health leader Kristin Kalla, MA MPH, as its new Executive Director. Kalla’s appointment follows a national search conducted by a committee comprised of the Center’s Board of Directors and key representatives from the Phoenix business, philanthropic and public health communities. Kalla holds Master’s degrees in Public Health (MPH) and Medical Anthropology (MA) from UCLA, in addition to a BA from the University of California, San Diego. In 2014, she was inducted into the Alumni Hall of Fame at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. She is also an ordained minister, certified in Ayurvedic nutrition, and a Reiki Master practitioner.

“We are very excited about having Ms. Kalla at the helm of the Southwest Center,” said imageMike Sparaco, Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS Board Chair. “Kristin is a mindful, mission-driven nonprofit executive who has diverse experience steering strategic change, scaling-up, and mobilizing funding for community-based initiatives focused on public and women’s health, HIV/AIDS, gender equality and diversity both in the U.S. and abroad.”

Over the course of a 25-plus-year career, Kalla has been a senior manager and technical advisor on public health and gender justice issues to the U.S. Government, USAID, CDC, foreign government ministries, UNICEF, CARE International, among others. She has led the development of protocols and standards in the fields of public health and social justice, including an international protocol for HIV/AIDS voluntary counseling and testing; youth programming and advocacy; prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission; and guidelines for ensuring the meaningful involvement of people living with HIV and AIDS.

“Arizona is now ranked 15th in the United States for the number of newly diagnosed HIV cases. I’m so inspired by the local survivors, LGBTQ community, advocates, city officials, donors, partners and Center staff who have committed their efforts to work on behalf of communities in the Phoenix area affected by HIV/AIDS. The City of Phoenix recently became the 11th U.S. Fast Track City to be part of the United Nations initiative to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2020 and I’m looking forward to leveraging my international experience and networks to lead Southwest Center in support of this important goal. It is a great honor and privilege to work with such a committed community to place those affected and living positively at the center of everything that we do in order to address their unique needs,” says Kalla.

The announcement comes just three months after Southwest Center announced it was one of 30 grantees nationwide to receive a 5-year, 1.7 million dollar grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to enhance HIV prevention and outreach services in Arizona.

NEARLY 2,000 CHRISTIANS SIGN STATEMENT SUPPORTING LGBT+ INCLUSION IN RESPONSE TO DIVISIVE “NASHVILLE STATEMENT”

Nearly 2,000 Christians from around the world had signed on to Christians United: A Statement In Support of LGBT+ Inclusion in the Church on Thursday morning, including more than 300 denominational leaders, theologians, and Christian influencers.

 

Christians United

 

San Diego, CA: Nearly 2,000 Christians from around the world had signed on to Christians United: A Statement In Support of LGBT+ Inclusion in the Church on Thursday morning, including more than 300 denominational leaders, theologians, and Christian influencers.

Christians United is an international theological statement bringing together thousands of LGBT+ affirming Christians to declare with one voice that the Church of Jesus Christ must be a place where LGBT+ people are celebrated and embraced. Christians United came as a direct response to The Nashville Statement, a document composed and signed by 150 major evangelical leaders in August 2017, which reaffirmed toxic, non-affirming theological commitments that have caused verifiable harm to countless LGBT+ people of faith around the world.

The statement was originally drafted by LGBT+ Christian activist and Nomad Partnerships Executive Director, Brandan Robertson and was edited by a distinguished editorial board including Dr. J. R. Daniel Kirk, Bishop Joseph Tolton, Rev. Steve Chalke, and Dr. Paula Williams.

Article 1 of the statement begins by declaring:

“WE AFFIRM that every human being is created in the image and likeness of God and that the great diversity expressed in humanity through our wide spectrum of unique sexualities and gender identities is a perfect reflection of the magnitude of God’s creative work.”

In the first twenty-four hours of it’s release, Christians United was signed on to by over 1,000 Christians from around the world, including top theologians and the leaders of some of the worlds most influential Christian denominations.

Christians United stands as a faithful witness that a new day is dawning in Christianity, a day in which the Church of Jesus Christ repents of its sin of exclusion, and swings open it’s doors to welcome all of God’s diverse children.

$1.7 Million Grant to Transform Lives Touched by HIV in Phoenix – Southwest Center™ for HIV/AIDS

 

SWCHIV

PRESS RELEASE

June 16, 2017 (PHOENIX): Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS is pleased to announce it is one of 30 grantees in the United States to receive a 5-year, 1.7 million dollar grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to enhance HIV prevention and outreach services in Arizona. In 2016, Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS performed over 5,000 free Rapid HIV and 3,000 STI tests for the Phoenix community. Thanks to the generous $1.7 million federal grant funding, Southwest Center will now be able to increase the accessibility of their free and low-cost HIV and STI tests to an even larger population of Arizonans whose lives have been touched by HIV. 

“Over 17,000 men and women are living with diagnosed HIV in Arizona. Many more live without knowledge of the disease,” says Gary Egan, Interim CEO of the Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS. “This grant will be instrumental in helping us and our community partners improve the lives of those 17,000 individuals and others who are at risk for HIV.”

Through a collaborative partnership between one-n-ten and Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation, the grant funds will be used to provide comprehensive, high-impact HIV prevention services to young, Hispanic men who have sex with men between the ages of 13 and 29. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Hispanic/Latino community is disproportionately affected by HIV. In 2014 alone, Hispanics/Latinos accounted for nearly a quarter of new HIV diagnoses in the United States, despite representing only 17% of the total U.S. population.

Not only will the funding be used to increase accessibility to HIV and STD testing among those at highest risk for infection, it will aim to re-engage previously diagnosed individuals who are now out-of-care, connect and retain diagnosed individuals to critical medical care and support services, and ensure that individuals who are at high risk for infection have access to critical prevention and support, including Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP). Additionally, project materials and services are being developed to meet the needs of Spanish-speaking individuals.

Founded in 1990, Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS is located inside the Parsons Center for Health and Wellness, conveniently located just off the light rail, and provides prevention, education and outreach services to 30,000 Maricopa County citizens each year living with HIV/AIDS or at-risk for becoming infected.

The impact of the generous CDC funding will be felt throughout the Phoenix community as it supports Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS reduce the spread of new infections, increase access to care, and promote overall health equity.

NGLCC Releases Historic "America’s LGBT Economy" Report

 
NGLCC Releases Historic
 “America’s LGBT Economy” Report,
Suggests LGBT Businesses Add
$1.7 Trillion to US Economy and
Create Tens of Thousands of Jobs Nationwide
 
National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce snapshot of
Certified LGBT Business Enterprises® (LGBTBEs) explores powerful economic contributions to America across all business sectors
The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), the business voice of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, has released the first-ever snapshot demonstrating the economic and social impact of America’s LGBT business owners and entrepreneurs. The America’s LGBT Economy report explores the revenues, types, sizes and geography of LGBT-owned businesses currently certified by NGLCC, as well as the number of jobs they create and the personal narratives of successful LGBT business owners who reflect the very best about America’s innovative and entrepreneurial spirit.
 
NGLCC’s “America’s LGBT Economy” report can be viewed and downloaded at www.nglcc.org/report
 
Bob Witeck of certified LGBTBE Witeck Communications helped prepare this landmark report.  Witeck’s works has helped give voice to the LGBT community and our annual spending power. Now he has helped NGLCC produce the first look at our economic impact as a business community.
 
“The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce is pleased to be able to evidence, through this report, what we’ve observed since our founding fifteen years ago — that America’s LGBT business owners are driving our economy upward and deserve every opportunity to keep creating jobs and innovating our industries. The estimated 1.4 million LGBT business owners NGLCC advocates for have truly earned a place at the equality table,” said NGLCC Co-Founder & President Justin Nelson. “If you are an LGBT business owner and not yet certified, you’re leaving opportunities on the table to help your business and our economy grow. For the LGBT community, this also means we are missing out on more accurate data, role models, job creator, and future success stories that prove ‘If you can buy it, a Certified LGBTBE can supply it.'”

“These numbers tell the real story,” said Bob Witeck, President of Witeck Communications, a certified LGBTBE that served as the analyst for this report. “While our community’s $917 billion spending power highlights our market clout, the jobs, tax revenues and profits we create as employers and entrepreneurs define our full economic value to America. We are just beginning to scratch the surface of our potential.”
 
“At NGLCC, we have nearly 200 corporate and government partners that understand not only the value of the LGBT dollar, but the economic imperative of inclusivity and LGBT visibility in their supply chains and marketplace. This groundbreaking report proves our NGLCC philosophy that economic visibility, just like social visibility, is essential in building a diverse and inclusive society,” said NGLCC Co-Founder & CEO Chance Mitchell.
