An opportunity for our community to read and share ‘words’ to reflect on the impacts of HIV/AIDS and honour those who are no longer with us, celebrate the accomplishments of our community and support those who are currently living with HIV/AIDS while building general awareness for World AIDS DAY locally.
Building on the success of last year’s World AIDS Day (WAD) event, we would like to invite community members to read passages of text from published or un-published works of inspiration around HIV/AIDS – potentially poetry, biographies, songs, speeches or other collections of words that could be read aloud.
This event will raise funds for future support event(s) at LPRC for those living with HIV/AIDS... See MoreSee Less
