Philadelphia, PA – Due to their broad reach and heavy influence, faith-based organizations have played critical roles in HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention efforts. The inclusion of churches and other religious organizations in discussions about HIV/AIDS can create a discourse that is free of judgment and associated stigma that encourages people to know their status.
This Saturday, August 14, 2010 from 10:00am to 3:00pm join the Living in Victory Everyday (L.I.V.E) Ministry of Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church, 2800 W. Cheltenham Avenue, Philadephia, PA as they host “Carnival for a Cure.” A FREE event, Carnival for a Cure will be an afternoon of rides, games, prizes food and much more! Confidential rapid HIV testing will also be provided. L.I.V.E. is focused on erasing the stigma associated with HIV testing. Teenagers and young women are especially encouraged to come out and get tested. Please see the flyer below for more information (click to enlarge):
