Stand Against Stigma Sunday - August 19 2012
Stigma related to HIV & AIDS remains the single most important barrier to public action and interaction. HIV & AIDS stigma and discrimination have been seen all over the country and around the world. Deadly and paralyzing, they manifest themselves differently between regions, communities, religious groups, and individuals. They are often seen alongside other forms of stigma and discrimination, such as racism, homophobia or misogyny.
On August 19 2012 churches and other Faith-based organizations will devote their Sunday to sending a message to their community that STIGMA MUST END WITH US! Your community can participate by:
- Having a service devoted to ending HIV & AIDS stigma in your community;
- Develop a community activity that has an anti-homophobic message;
- Connect with other Faith institutions, community leaders and members to support the continuing fight against all forms of discrimination.
