We CARRY LIGHT to recognize and address the needs and rights of women of color, the LGBTQ community, Native women, refugees and immigrants, people of all faiths, and all of those who call this country home. NNEDV seeks to CARRY LIGHT by providing a network for support, love, unity, and social change.

While there has been increased awareness about domestic violence in same-sex relationships, the HIV risks for LGBTQ individuals experiencing abuse are often overlooked. On September 27, recognized as National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) recognizes the risk factors that make male victims of domestic violence in same-sex relationships susceptible to contracting HIV.

It’s remarkable how far we have come in the fight against HIV. Medical advances have given people living with HIV the ability to live long, healthy lives, and have given us a reason to have National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day. On this awareness day, the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) and the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL), call attention to the unique needs of an aging society. While it is necessary to continue to educate younger generations on HIV, it is also important to note the changing face of those living with HIV.
