Healthy Selves, Healthy Communities
March 23, 2016
EVENT DATE: May 25, 2016
Our AmeriCorps team (Washington AIDS Partnership) is fundraising for our long term project, the culmination of our year of service. We hope that, with the support of donations from family and friends, we can create healing, social change, and the destigmatization of HIV/AIDS. We plan to facilitate the creation of a mural at HIPS, a nonprofit focused on harm-reduction and support for people in street economies. The mural will be created and inspired by youth and community members affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. In addition, these funds will support an art exhibition that will bring together community members from multiple HIV/AIDS nonprofits. Community members will create art that represents “healthy selves and health communities”.
