We’ve officially entered December which means that today is World AIDS Day, a day to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS, to remember those who have died from the disease, and to celebrate progressive treatments and prevention services.
In honor of World AIDS Day, the NWA Center for Equality is hosting a candlelight vigil at 6:30 p.m. at Rogue Pizza Co. on Dickson Street. The group is welcoming donations for funding of NWA HOPE, the center’s HIV/AIDS outreach and prevention education program.
For more information on HIV and AIDS, the Huffington Post has a list of 7 books about the history and impact of the disease on the world.
What else is happening tonight?
21-year-old Texas rocker Johnny Cooper is at George’s, there’s Wii Bowling at Smoke & Barrel, and Ultrasonic Nozzle and Jason Dub are at FIX.
