World AIDS Day is this Friday. Observed every year on December 1, it is an opportunity to show support to those living with HIV, commemorate those who have died from AIDS-related illness, and take the time to remind everyone that HIV has not gone away. This year's theme is Increasing Impact through Transparency, Accountability, and Partnerships. In NYC, an annual event hosted by End AIDS NY 2020 Coalition is happening in Brooklyn this year (find more info HERE). Find more information, events, and how you can get involved on the site HERE.
