December 1

A journey through the intimate stories of those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.   We tell their stories of struggle, hope, and perseverance; and how their faith sustained them. There also will be a candlelight vigil where we will remember those we have lost to the epidemic. In partnership with Washington Health Institute and DC Health, this will be a night of fellowship, anointed singing, dancing, and spoken word — a night sure to be a blessing to all who attend.
This event is free to attend. RSVP is required. There will be an ASL interpreter at the performance.
