Remembering those we've lost

Join us in a night for remembering those who've lost their lives to the AIDS epidemic. This program will serve to help make a social statement concerning the spreading AIDS issues that we face as a global community.

41 million living with HIV/AIDS

In 1988, the United Nations' General Assembly expressed deep concern at the pandemic proportions of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. The the World Health Organization declared Dec. 1, 1988 World AIDS Day.

Today, over 41 million people are living with HIV/AIDS. These statistics don't speak to the stigma and discrimination that those who contract HIV and AIDS suffer through. 

Join us on Tuesday, Dec. 1 as we show solidarity and support for those who suffer from HIV/AIDS worldwide.
