Khafre K. Abif named new community organizer of SAC
The Birmingham, Alabama-based Southern AIDS Coalition has named Khafre. K. Abif as its new community organizer.
Abif is an Atlanta resident, author of “Cornbread, Fish and Collard Greens: Prayers, Poems & Affirmations for People Living with HIV/AIDS” and founder of “Cycle for Freedom,” a 2,028 mile bike trip designed to raise awareness of the seriousness of HIV/AIDS in black communities by retracing the path of those who fled slavery along the Underground Railroad. He says his life journey has prepared him for this new role.
“I believe my 27 years of living with HIV in eight different states provides me with valuable insight into how different communities are affected by HIV and how these communities respond to the needs of people living with the disease,” says Abif. “We must grow a broader coalition of people living with HIV and provide them with the tools to successfully advocate for policy change.”
“Khafre’s local, regional, and national service as an activist, writer, author, blogger and educator made him a natural choice to lead this effort,” says SAC Executive Director Nic Carlisle.
