Want to be an RCP Role Model?

Red Circle Project, as a part of the model we operate under, known as Community Promise, puts out role model stories which highlights the stories of individuals who are part of our community and who have taken the initiative to be in control of their health through knowing their status, helping reduce the stigma associated with HIV and AIDS, and continuing to collect tools to add to their safe sex tool kit, such as condom use, PrEP, harm reduction, or abstinence.
