The HHS Partnership Center and White House Office for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships are hosting an evening National Call to Action for Faith Leaders to End the Stigma that Surrounds HIV and AIDS, live from the White House this Thursday at 5:00 p.m. This event provides an opportunity for your congregation or community organization to host a watch party and join in the discussion on preventing and responding to HIV/AIDS in our communities, and supporting individuals living with HIV/AIDS.
