This year’s keynote speaker and recipient of the Shelby Hodge Vision Award is Cleve Jones, an HIV activist with roots in San Francisco that date back to the 1970s and founder of the NAMES Project National AIDS Memorial Quilt.
The World AIDS Day virtual event will be held on Giving Tuesday, a global annual day of spreading generosity and charity to organizations and communities that rely on public support to accomplish their mission.
Those who connect with the cause are welcome to contribute, helping to support AIDS Foundation Houston in its mission to end the HIV epidemic in Houston and to provide education, testing, housing and supportive services to individuals affected by HIV/AIDS.
