Each year, organizations and individuals across the world bring attention to the HIV epidemic, endeavor to increase HIV awareness and knowledge, speak out against HIV stigma, and call for an increased response to move toward Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America. On December 1st at 2:00 pm ET, join the Live with Leadership World AIDS Day Edition with Harold Phillips, and other federal and community speakers. Learn how to submit questions in advance or during the conversation.

UMFA’s local partners include the University of Utah’s LGBT Resource Center, Black Cultural Center, and PrEP Clinic as well as Planned Parenthood’s Teen Council and The LGBTQIA+ and Allies in Medicine Student Interest Group. Established in 1989, Day With(out) Art celebrates the lives and achievements of those lost to AIDS, encourages caring for all people living with AIDS, educates diverse communities about HIV infection, and continues to work towards finding a cure. Beginning December 1, the video program will be available to view online at visualaids.org/transmissions.

  • Dec. 12: The Divine Assembly Worship Service, 7:00-10:00 p.m. online. Hosted by The Divine Assembly: "We will connect the nodes and energize the mycelial network for a second time! On Twitch.tv TDA will broadcast worship, music, and ceremony from a few locations, but we invite everyone to plan a ceremony where you are. That can mean by yourself (painting, meditation, or doing yoga, etc., as some did during our first Assembly) or with a Covid-appropriate group (dancing, in a drum circle, or putting together a jigsaw puzzle, etc., as some nodes did). For now, the Internet will serve as surrogate for our gathering community. Please join us, and let's exchange energy and blessings! Register at www.thedivineassembly.org to receive email with the twitch.tv link before the event."
