Derinthia Williams

Derinthia Williams began advocating for HIV in 2018. She provides education around HIV and AIDS to peers across the Atlanta area. She uses her social media as a key way to educate her peers. She has experience in sexual health, harm reduction tips, and she is certified in HIV testing and counseling. Williams is also trained to be a mandated reporter for the state of Georgia. She can identify victims of emotional abuses, drug addiction, and domestic violence. She plans to open her non-profit organization: Matter Over Mind: Chains for Change in 2019. Wanting to create a safe space for battered youth and victims of abuse, her main goal is to give youth an escape from their reality. Williams is proud to say she helped create a policy brief for elected officials to change the HIV criminalization laws in Georgia. A mantra she lives by is, “HIV doesn’t define her she’s defined it. I am Born for this!”
