More than 1.1 million people are living with HIV in the United States, and of all 50 states, Florida has one of the highest rates of infection. Why have we not heard about this growing epidemic? Since the beginning, HIV/AIDS has been a disease stigmatized due to gender, race, class and sexuality taboos. To commemorate World AIDS Day, come think through the growing epidemic of HIV/AIDS, and how we can heal ourselves and our communities. We also will host a panel of individuals who have been impacted by the epidemic, display squares from the AIDS Quilt and hold a candlelight vigil for those we know who have been lost to HIV/AIDS. - Sponsored by the Office of Service-Learning.
