Lorenzo Rivas (he/him)

Lead HIV & STI Prevention Coordinator

Lorenzo was born and raised in Milwaukee.  He has always valued Diverse & Resilient’s work and what he agency does for our community.  Since his teen years, he has volunteered with and has shown an interest in Diverse & Resilient.  One sunny day, Lorenzo got a phone call from Ronnie Grace, D&R’s lead prevention coordinator, who had mentored Lorenzo for the past few years.  Long story short: Lorenzo was given the opportunity to give back to the community by educating and promoting self-health awareness.  His training took place at UWM where he was certified in CTR which allowed him to begin his new career in the prevention of STIs.  His mission is to help lower the transmission rates of the HIV virus and to help protect his community from other STIs.  Undetectable equals untransmittable.  U=U.  Knowledge is power!
