Life is hard enough as a young black woman but being HIV positive is an added complexity when Justice starts to navigate through college during her freshmen year. Justice’s dramatic best friend Mia vows to help her steer through it all until she finds herself being unable to determine her boyfriend’s true motives in the bedroom. To make matters more complicated Justice meets Ashton who brings up unanswered questions from her parent’s past. Justice will have to decide if she is more than HIV…

I am reflecting this morning on the process we have been through in the creation of the Magic City Acceptance Academy. First of all, I want to thank the incredible staff and family at Bimingham AIDS Outreach and Karen Musgrove. The decision of the Alabama Charter Commission is only final for yesterday. I, we, are going to dig in and work even harder to make this necessary space for our youth happen, WHATEVER IT TAKES. The hope and success is within us. We just need to access the resilient spirit that has gotten us to this point and continue. As for me, I am going to start rewriting today and we will go through the process as many times as it takes.

A long time supporter needs you!
Since there is no republican opposition in my race for District Judge Place 9, the primary IS THE ELECTION. I need your help NOW!
Here is what I need:
1. Reach out to your friends and associates announcing your support of my candidacy, and encouraging them to support me as well.
2. Check out my web page https://votelouwillie.com
3. Follow me on Twitter @votelouwillie, like, and retweet my posts.
4. Like and Share my page on FaceBook, Lou Willie For Judge, at https://www.facebook.com/votelouwillie/ and invite your Friends to Like and Share it as well.
5. Let me know how many yard signs you need. They should only be placed in your yard, or a neighbor’s yard that agrees to post it – nothing on roadsides or rights of way please.
6. Let me know if you need any printed campaign material. I have both business card and postcard size.
7. If you are part of a social, civic, gardening, or other club or organization that would allow me to come to a meeting/gathering to briefly speak or introduce myself, please let me know when and where.
Regardless of which method you choose to communicate, it would be helpful to point out that running a campaign can be very expensive, and encourage your friends and associates to give generously of their time and money. Also point out that their support leading up to the Primary (June 5th) is critical, because without Republican opposition, the PRIMARY IS THE ELECTION!
