Every year, individuals and organizations across the globe unite for World AIDS Day on December 1st. While there are many HIV/AIDS awareness dates throughout the year, this particular day brings everyone to the same table.
Community groups across the country will be commemorating this day by hosting educational and fundraising activities for various related organizations. I’ve gathered a list of a few and posted the details below. For more information, make sure that you click the flier (where applicable).
The Howard University Student Association will host their second annual World AIDS Day Benefit Concert, Six Degrees, featuring Marsha Ambrosius (formerly of Floetry). The proceeds from the event will be donated to Metro TeenAIDS. HIV/AIDS testing opportunities, as well as educational information on safer sexual health practices, will be available on-site. The event starts at 7p and general admission tickets are $20 ($10 for students).
To find more events in your area, you can visit www.worldaidsday.org or check out local community calendars. Another good resource is the #WAD2010 hashtag on Twitter. People will be sharing events and happenings in their cities, so you’re sure to find great information this way.
