CEG’s founder and executive director, Toni Young, was featured in a piece published in The New York Times Opinion section: “H.I.V. Is Coming to Rural America And rural America is not ready” by Dr. Steven W. Thrasher (Northwestern University), speaking about West Virginia and rural America’s burgeoning HIV crisis lurking beneath the bucolic scenery: As A. Toni Young, an AIDS activist, puts it, the “epidemic of opioid addiction — fueled by drug companies’ promotion of pain medications beginning in the 1990s — is a crisis for rural regions in part because these regions are completely unprepared to deal with the magnitude of the problem.” Ms. Young founded what is now called the Community Education Group in Washington, D.C., in 1993, originally to address H.I.V. and AIDS in women. An African American lesbian, she has spent most of the past 30 years working to help members of the Black, gay and urban communities it affects.
