Last Thursday was National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, and we’re still rocking the red pump all over Chicago this month!
“Educate, Inspire, and Transform” FREE Workshop
This Saturday, Red Pump will lead a service learning workshop for Chicago teen girls at “Educate, Inspire, and Transform,” an intergenerational HIV prevention workshop sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services and by the Stakeholders Collaboration to Improve Student Health. The workshop is FREE and open to women and girls of all ages. The day will consist of interactive workshops and FREE testing will be available on-site. For more information, click here.

Tickets are still on sale for our 2nd Annual “Rock the Red” Fashion Show on Thursday, March 24th. The event will be held at Britten Loft (1420 S. Michigan) and starts at 6p with a cocktail hour. We will present youth filmmaker and HIV activist Keyana Ray with this year’s Ultimate Red Pump Rocker award.
