This page is dedicated to resources and information for the 2017-2018 academic year! Included here is our Fall 2017 Campaign Kit, resources to table with at your student activities fair, and posting of our monthly newsletter, which is also shared via our listserv.
Fall 2017 Campaign Kit
This has all the information you need to start the year right as a chapter. Or, if you haven't yet started your chapter, use this Campaign Kit as your guide! There is a section specifically on how to start a chapter on your campus. Included is information about our areas of advocacy, tactics, highlights from last year, events to watch out for, and a month-by-month suggestion of what your semester should look like with your chapter. Use it frequently!
Chapter Planning Template
Sit down together with your co-conspirators, and use this to make concrete goals for the semester. The more specific we can be, the more success we will have.
This can be used for tabling at your student activities fair, or at events to hand out to potential new members for a basic overview of what SGAC does.
Use this presentation (the whole thing, or certain slides) at your first chapter meeting! This helpful tool can be used to explain SGAC to people who have never taken action with us before. It explains why global HIV is such an important issue, and how it intersects with many other social justice issues, includes videos, and more.
Use this for general outreach! It's editable to fill in meeting time, date, and location, and even to change the picture to one of your chapter at a recent event. Handing our smaller fliers make people more likely to pick them up, and save trees!
Report back about your Congressional Meeting
Our chapters aim to meet with their local congressional office once a month, to build strong relationships and ensure global HIV is a priority for the Member of Congress. Being part of a national movement means we have to be organized to be effective. This will help us stay effective in our advocacy.
The fastest way to bring in new members is to start the year off by going to the Fall Uprising 3 Day Event TOGETHER! The event is free, you only have to pay for travel costs. Bring a strong contingent of students to learn about the issues and all the ways we advocate together creatively. This event will leave you equipped with all the tools of an effective advocate, AND the priceless experience of meeting in your Congress Member's D.C. office about an issue you're passionate about: Global HIV.
