"Taking Root: Our Stories, Our Community" is a community-driven, community-owned initiative that puts the power to end HIV stigma back in the hands of the community. Taking Root reveals the storyteller in each of us. By telling and witnessing our stories, we overcome silence and shame.

It's been said that it takes a thousand voices to tell a single story. To tell the story of A&PIs and HIV, we need each of you to take part.

The following materials will help you to hold a Taking Root screening for your staff, clients or community. The Taking Root Facilitators Guide provides a path for those screening stories to facilitate discussion. We strongly recommend that you read the guide before screening these stories and facilitating discussions.





The Banyan Tree Project offers a Web-based Training Series, and can offer specialized interactive online trainings. To find out more, visit our Trainings page.
