There's an epidemic in our nation's capital - and few people talk about it.
The overall prevalence of HIV remains 3.2% among DC adults and adolescents, above the World Health Organization definition of 1% for a generalized epidemic, according to the Department of Health.
It's time to break the silence.
Join us for an Open Mic Night at Artfully Chocolate Bistro to share empowering and inspiring stories about living with HIV/AIDS in the District, and what's being done to help people move from crisis mode to compassionate relief. We welcome songs, poetry, spoken word and other narrative performances.
15% of tonight's proceeds will be donated to Whitman-Walker Health, a Washington DC community health center specializing in HIV/AIDS care and lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender care
Sign-up starts at 6:30 p.m. Storytelling begin promptly at 7:30 p.m.
