Sunday, Dec. 1, marks the annual World AIDS Day, an internationally recognized day that is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS crisis that was caused by the spread of HIV. It’s also a day designed to remember those whose lives were lost due to the disease. On Monday, Dec. 2, Detroit’s World AIDS Day Community Committee presents Thriving Beyond the Red Ribbon at The Eastern.
“World AIDS Day, the first-ever global health day designated on Dec. 1 every year since 1988, is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness,” write event organizers. “World AIDS Day is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV.”
This year’s event sponsors include Gilead, Community Health Awareness Group, Crown Specialty Pharmacy, Corktown Health Center and more. This free event includes breakfast, lunch, raffles and more, along with information about combatting HIV and AIDS in the community.
