04/23/2014

WAUKEGAN State Representative Rita Mayfield, D-Waukegan, welcomed the Lake County - Stop the Stigma Group to the Capitol. 60 individuals representing the LGBT community and faith based organizations traveled to Springfield to learn more about advocating for HIV and how to frame the message in order to help educate individuals in our district.

The Lake County - Stop the Stigma Group is a collection of community agencies that provide testing and support services to individuals which are HIV positive. They offer comprehensive care services aimed at improving the quality of life of individuals and the communities which are affected by HIV.

"Our goal is to increase and promote testing of HIV within the community, to 'Stop the Stigma' associated with HIV through education and community events," Mayfield said. "My office is proud to be a part of the movement for raising HIV awareness."
