Getting to Zero in DC: Zero Infections. Zero Deaths. Zero Discrimination.

gettingtozero150.jpgPlease join the DC Community Coalition for our World AIDS Day event: "Getting to Zero in DC: Zero Infections. Zero Deaths. Zero Discrimination."

Come out and stand with the DC community to end AIDS in DC!

In October, the DC Community Coalition submitted to the Mayor and his Commission on HIV/AIDS a call for a comprehensive citywide HIV/AIDS strategy that would stretch across sectors of local government (including such diverse departments as education, housing and corrections in addition to the health department which has historically lead on HIV issues) to address the important issues of prevention, treatment, care, and cure in a holistic way. We have not heard a response from the Mayor or his Commission on HIV/AIDS, so the time has come to make a louder call.

On Monday, 12/3 from 3:30pm to 5:30pm, a coalition of organizations representing the diverse community of individuals in DC impacted by HIV/AIDS will come together at the Wilson Building (1350 Pennsylvania Ave NW) to demand an all inclusive citywide strategy that addresses the totality of issues impacting our community. In honor of all those individuals that we remember and the future we champion every year on World AIDS Day, we will be calling on the Mayor and his Commission on HIV/AIDS to tackle HIV/AIDS in a comprehensive way as part of his "one city" approach.

Standing together, we can show the strength, determination, and perseverance of our community. On the heels of the election, where our President called on us to be part of the process and not spectators, this is an opportunity for us to call our local government to work with us to truly end this epidemic through prevention, treatment, care, and cure.
