Each year, SisterLove honors 20 HIV+ women from around the country who have been living positive for 20 years or more. This community-oriented honors ceremony celebrates our belief that these women possess the rare hindsight and foresight to help to eradicate the HIV/AIDS pandemic through their outstanding leadership and dedication. In addition, SisterLove also recognizes women who have been living HIV+ positive for less than 20 years. These women are inducted into the 2020 Leading Women's Society during the Leadership Institute.
