A Story in Pictures: AIDSWatch 2013
March 15, 2013
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then almost 200 pictures should certainly tell a full story! And what a story is told by the pictures taken of AIDSWatch 2013 by photographer Khalid Naji-Allah! AIDSWatch 2013 took place February 25-26, when more than 170 participants came to Washington, D.C., to make their voice heard with their Members of Congress about HIV/AIDS-related issues impacting them and their communities. After a day of training on the issues and on the specifics of meeting with lawmakers, as well as a reception honoring leaders in the positive organizing movement, AIDSWatch participants collectively attended nearly 200 congressional meetings to help advance HIV policy in their respective congressional districts. Click here to review Khalid's photos of AIDSWatch 2013. And mark your calendars NOW for AIDSWatch 2014, scheduled for April 28-29, 2014!
