National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is a day to "Share Knowledge. Take Action." The nationwide observance held each March 10 sheds light on the disease's often overlooked impact on women and girls and empowers people to make a difference. Every year on this important day, thousands of people, advocacy organizations, and local and state public health officials share the facts about HIV/AIDS and how it affects women and girls.
I had the honor of taking part in The Council on Substance Abuse-NCADD and Eve's Circle event Taking It to the Pews in Montgomery, Alabama. I presented to a small group of women but a very powerful group. I met some lovely young women who were engaged and eager to learn. There was a wonderful workshop for the young women with some really great games that helped making learning about HIV/AIDS fun.
