Co-Modititor of the The Presbyterian AIDS Network (PAN), PHEWA, Presbyterian Church USA welcomes those who advocate with and care for persons and families who have been infected or affected by HIV and AIDS. We encourage the Church to live out Jesus' ministry of love and justice.

Elder Kerr’s greatest achievement is the programmatic and service expansion of the START at Westminster (Syringe, Training, Advocacy, Resources, and Treatment) program. Under his stewardship, the START at Westminster program has served hundreds of active and recovering drug users—linking them to recovery, treatment and harm reduction services, offered seniors invaluable HIV/AIDS prevention education services, and provided HIV testing, counseling, and referral to thousands of DC residents. Through his dedicated service and leadership, thousands of District residents have become aware of their HIV status, hundreds more linked to proper care, treatment, and support services for their disease management needs, and scores have collaborated with him to advocate on behalf of those that stigma has silenced.

He is now the CEO of G III Associates. G III Associates is committed to advocating, educating and collaborating for social justice through harm reduction. Together we can build a healthier community. He is an Elder for Westminster Presbyterian Church in Washington DC.
