Our AmeriCorps team is currently in the process of fundraising for our long term project, the culmination of our year of service. For our long term project, 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 focus on creating art that represents “healthy selves and health communities”. We hope that, with the support of donations from family and friends, we can create healing, social change, and the destigmatization of HIV/AIDS.
