Today, on World AIDS Day, we unite in support of the 37 million people around the world living with HIV/AIDS and recommit to achieving an AIDS-free generation. While significant strides have been made in prevention and treatment, the struggle with HIV continues in Black America as our brothers and sisters bear the brunt of the disease.
There is promise to end AIDS, and the action of the Black Church can alter the course of this epidemic. With 20 million parishioners across the country, the Black Church has been a leader in tackling social justice issues for decades – and the unequal impact of HIV on our communities is no different.
Today, join us in raising awareness of HIV’s grip on Black America and the need for action by sharing this video with your parishioners and social networks.
By inspiring action in our communities, we, as members of the Black Church, can reverse the course of the HIV epidemic among African Americans.
