Every year, the U.S. recognizes March 10th as National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD). It’s a nationwide initiative to raise awareness about the increasing impact of HIV/AIDS on women & girls and encourages ladies to take action.
"Every 35 minutes, a woman tests positive for HIV in the United States."
In observance of this day, The Red Pump Project is asking bloggers to participate in the third annual “Rock the Red Pump™” campaign: 500 in 50. Last year, 250 of you took to Twitter, Facebook, and your blogs to help us “Rock the Red Pump” and this year, we’re asking you to do it again! We have a goal of getting 500 blogs and we have 50 days to do it.
Thank you for your support of The Red Pump Project and we look forward to Rocking the Red Pump™ 500 strong on March 10, 2011!
We love the amount of activism that’s surrounding this year’s World AIDS Day. The arts aren’t being left out, as rapper and poet Talib Kweli, and poet and writer Bassey Ikpi collaborate on a piece about HIV. Awesome piece by two incredibly talented artists.
