TLF Share joins info drive in Marikina
In a post on her Facebook page on November 4, 2021, Senator Risa Hontiveros acknowledged the participation of TLF Share in #BidaAngBarangay: HIV Law and SOGIE Orientation Program, an information and education campaign that ran in 16 barangays in Marikina City.
Through #BidaAngBarangay, discussions were opened with barangay leaders and residents on Republic Act 11166, or the Philippine HIV and AIDS Policy Act, and the issues of the LGBTQI community. These efforts were aimed at building partnerships and policies in the barangays that affirm and guarantee the protection of PLHIVs and LGBTQIs.
In a separate post on its own Facebook page, TLF Share reported that its participation in the drive consisted of HIV and SOGIE related sensitization on stigma and discrimination among Marikina's barangay officials.
Senator Hontiveros, who was an Equality Champ awardee in 2018, also acknowledged Action for Health Initiatives (ACHIEVE), Lion's Club Marikina, Liga ng mga Barangay President Ziffred Ancheta, and Councilor Angel Nuñez as partners in the campaign.
