Why Alex Walks: To End HIV

AIDS United is participating in Whitman Walker Health's annual Walk to End HIV on World AIDS Day, and Alex Smith, our Senior Policy Manager, is currently the lead fundraiser. Alex has also devoted his career to the health and rights of marginalized communities through the coupling of sound public policy and the meaningful involvement of people living with HIV and other marginalized persons. We decided to take this opportunity to highlight Alex as our start AIDS Walk team member and to learn a bit more about his work, motivations, and hopes on this World AIDS Day.

Reflections on World AIDS Day 2016

Today, another World AIDS Day will come and go, just like the many before it. While we are 35 years into this epidemic – perhaps because we are 35 years into this epidemic – it is more important than ever to take the time to observe World AIDS Day, and reflect on what it truly means.

World AIDS Day: The Time to Act is Now

December 1 marked World AIDS Day, a time to remember and honor those who have died as a result of AIDS and HIV infection, commemorate the progress made in the fight against the AIDS epidemic, and emphasize the need for continued efforts in reaching goals of an AIDS-Free generation. The United States’ theme, The Time to Act Is Now, recognizes the critical moment we’ve reached. The HIV epidemic in the United States began with fear around an inexplicable illness and discrimination towards those impacted. Living with HIV was once seen as a death sentence. Through medical innovation, policy change, and the dedication of advocates, people living with HIV can now live full lives. Despite this progress, significant work lies ahead. In the United States, 1.2 million people are living with HIV, and only 30% of these people have reached viral suppression. There are stark disparities in the burden of HIV in certain communities and discriminatory practices still threaten the lives of all people living with HIV. From passionate statements during White House events to landmark actions by politicians across the country, World AIDS Day has made it clear - the time to act is now.

A Conversation with Maxwell Cameron, AmeriCorps Alum

Maxwell Cameron is the Executive Director at World AIDS Day Detroit. Originally from Detroit, MI, he served as an AIDS United AmeriCorps Member in Detroit in 2009-2010. After his year of AmeriCorps service, he did fund development work with AIDS Walk Detroit, AIDS Walk San Francisco, and AIDS Walk for Life in Toronto, Canada.

Confronting Stigma on World AIDS Day in Washington, DC

While the roles of medicine and traditional HIV testing/outreach have been paramount to our success in fighting HIV/AIDS; stigma remains a central obstacle. This World AIDS Day, the AIDS United AmeriCorps team in Washington, DC, addressed stigma in fresh, innovative ways. We used multiple channels to engage our community and raise awareness for HIV/AIDS.

World AIDS Day 2014: A Week of AmeriCorps Activities in Atlanta

As a Member on the newest team in the AIDS United AmeriCorps Program, I celebrated World AIDS Day through service! In three days my four team members and I provided nearly 200 HIV tests and gave four school presentations all around Atlanta. Because young people aged 13-25 are disproportionately impacted by HIV/AIDS in Atlanta, we focused our outreach at youth.
