From Adin Vaewsorn ’15:
In recognition of World AIDS Day, come to the Community Health Center building at 675 Main St. at 5:30 pm, Monday December 2nd. The evening will pay tribute to World AIDS Day through a musical and visual commemoration, featuring personal narrative from patients afflicted with HIV/AIDS, a visual presentation of the AIDS epidemic in Africa, live musical entertainment including a performance by an African Drumming Troupe led by Wesleyan alumnus Abraham Adzenyah. The evening will conclude with a ceremonial reading of the names on the quilt.
According to aids.gov, today there more than 1.1 million people in the United States who are living with HIV infection, and almost 1 in 5 (18.1%) are unaware of their infection. Join us in solidarity with those who have been affected by this disease and in celebration of the fight against it.

Time: 5:30 p.m.
Place: Community Health Center building, 675 Main St.
From Tali Robbins ’15:
Join us this December 1 for a screening of “The Other City” in honor of World AIDS Day.
Not far from the White House, the Capitol, and the National Mall lies a part of Washington, DC that the tourists never see and the mainstream media virtually ignores. At least three percent of DC is HIV positive, a staggering rate higher than parts of Africa. Behind all the stories of heartbreak, loss, and struggle there are also the incredible, encouraging stories of the people behind grassroots movements to extend education, combat stigmas, and spread hope.
Come, watch, eat free Typhoon dinner, and remember to wear red!
Date: Saturday, December 1
Time: 6-8 p.m.
Place: Shanklin 107
Cost: FREE (and you get Typhoon dinner)
