The Red Pump Project® is a nonprofit organization raising awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls. We empower, educate, and motivate action by boldly driving conversation online and offline around HIV prevention and issues related to sexual and reproductive health. The Red Pump serves as a symbol of empowerment representing the strength and courage of women affected by HIV/AIDS. Below are some various ways to become involved with The Red Pump Project!
Every March, we ask women across the country to participate in our signature Rock the Red Pump® (#RocktheRedPump) campaign in recognition of National Women and Girls’ HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD). The mission of the campaign is to start conversation and to motivate social media-savvy women to use their platforms to talk about the HIV/AIDS epidemic, specifically its effect on women and girls.
The Red Pump Project also conducts prevention outreach and educational workshops across the country. Red Pump participates in health fairs, panel discussions and community events focused on improving health outcomes in Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, and Washington D.C.
