To amplify the voices of groups who are currently underrepresented and impacted by HIV, the group is currently seeking and prioritizing applications from people in Oregon who are Black or African American; Hispanic or Latino/a/x; American Indian or Alaska Native; transgender, non-binary, or gender diverse, with a focus on transgender women; people of color who are living with HIV; young people (ages 18-29); and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islanders.

Prospective members may
contact the co-chairs regarding any questions and may be invited to attend a meeting to learn more about the group before applying.
Change: Help create a future where there are no new infections and everyone living with HIV is healthy.
Connect: Meet people around the state who share this vision.
Contribute: Advise on statewide plans to address HIV and co-infections. Diverse perspectives related to the group’s goals of increasing testing, expanding prevention, ensuring treatment, and eliminating disparities are welcome. The Statewide Planning Group meets three to four times per year. Community members who are unaffiliated with an agency (e.g., participate on unpaid time) are usually eligible for a stipend as a way to thank you for your time.
