What is the Clinton Global Initiative Commitment to Action?

The NAACP, in partnership with Gilead Sciences, made a Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Commitment to Action in 2013 to enlist faith leaders as change agents to address the disparate and severe impact of HIV on African Americans. The commitment aims to scale the initiative over five years in order to reach Black congregants in the 30 cities that make up nearly two-thirds of the nation’s HIV epidemic. Specifically, the initiative will:

  • Conduct faith leader trainings across the 30 cities with the greatest HIV burden
  • Obtain formal resolutions from mainline denominations to incorporate HIV messaging into Church activities
  • Integrate HIV-related materials into required course curricula in predominantly Black seminaries.
