Today is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

nbhaadNational Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is a grassroots effort shaped around the needs of communities that work hard each and every year to make it a success. Annually, nearly 20,000 Black men and women in the United States test positive for HIV, an alarming number, especially if you multiply it by the last 10 years alone. That’s 200,000 people who are now living with HIV or may have died from AIDS-related complications. It’s time for us to do something that inspires young and old, gay and straight, religious and non-religious alike to realize the value and worth of Black life, and act accordingly. Visit www.nationalblackaidsday.org and AIDS.gov for more information.
