ONE Campus members show solidarity across the country for World AIDS Day

Every December 1st, people worldwide come together for World AIDS Day to remember those lost to the disease, show support for people living with AIDS, and unite in the fight against AIDS. ONE Campus Leaders across the country commemorated World AIDS Day by raising awareness and generating catalytic actions on their campuses. From giveaways to study sessions, each chapter harnessed their creativity to organize unique events.

Film screenings

Several chapters showed documentaries like Zaza Rising and The Price of Free on campus, using it as an opportunity to facilitate discussions and mobilize viewers to take action.

Awareness weeks

Campus chapters at Lafayette College and Hood College hosted a creative week of AIDS awareness events, such as creating an AIDS Red Carpet and playing AIDS Awareness Jeopardy. Lafayette generated 104 actions in support of the Global Fund!

Giveaway

At Bryant University, students who took action by writing tweets to Secretary Pompeo were entered into a giveaway for a chance to win Durex (RED) products.

Dr. Paul Zeitz book talk

The ONE chapter at University of Virginia invited author and human rights advocate Dr. Paul Zeitz to speak about his new memoir, Waging Justice.

Tabling

What’s a campaign without some tabling? Chapters tabled on their campuses, informing students that AIDS is still a crisis and asking them to handwrite postcards and letters to Secretary Pompeo.

There’s still more work to be done in the fight to #endAIDS. Take action today and add your voice!
