Lauren Banks, ED

For over ten years, the Rev. Lauren Banks has dedicated her efforts to HIV/AIDS policy, with a specific focus on federal appropriations and the crucial role of housing in putting an end to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Lauren has been an integral part of NHAHC’s efforts for years, where she has shared her expertise in HOPWA policy and the intersection between the Ryan White program and HOPWA. She has provided invaluable assistance to local jurisdictions in improving their HOPWA programs, although the majority of her time is dedicated to advocating on Capitol Hill and tirelessly fighting for high-quality housing options for low-income individuals living with HIV.

In addition to her extensive policy work, Lauren holds two Masters degrees, one in Fine Arts and another in Divinity.
