The International AIDS Conference will be here in a little more than one month from now. It will be one of the biggest conferences to come through the District. In fact, the Washington Business Journal predicts it will generate about $33 million. But you don't need millions of dollars to attend the conference. This conference is being planned to include every budget so that you can get involved and stay there. Here's a list of some no-cost and low-cost activities in and around the IAC 2012.

So what if you cannot make it to D.C. at all and you still want to participate
. Host a conference HUB in your community. If you want to be an activist, you have to act, right? A conference hub is a mini-conference that is held wherever you are. When you register, you can have access to workshop and training materials, selected recorded video clips from the D.C. conference, and much more. The best part is you don't have to leave your community. For more information or to apply for a hub, click here.

Come back and visit this page, as more information on free and low-cost events will be updated upon release. Are you ready for AIDS 2012?
