Sistas Organizing to Survive
Sistas Organizing to Survive (SOS) is the grassroots mobilization of black women in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Launched in 2008, SOS encourages black women to get tested where they live, work, play, and worship. Objectives of SOS include:
- To educate black women about HIV/AIDS and how other STDs, hepatitis and substance abuse increase their risk.
- To empower black women to take charge of and control their sexual health.
- To connect black women to HIV/AIDS resources.
- To offer tools that enable black women to educate others where they live, work, play, and worship.
