Light for Rights this World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day 2010 begins with a promising UNAIDS report "citing a downward trend in new HIV infections and AIDS-related deaths over the past decade and stabilization of the number of people living with HIV" (PlusNews). Next, in thousands of events held across the planet, lights will dim in personal and global remembrance of millions lost over 30 years of AIDS. Finally, light returns to focus on stigma and discrimination preventing universal access to all this progress.

Light for Rights is the theme of tomorrow’s World AIDS Day. Shine your light to expose and demand equal access without retribution to HIV testing, health services, employment and personal support for all people and generate human rights progress to last long after the war on AIDS is finally won.

Sneak-peak opportunity to extend life-saving HIV/AIDS services close to home and take one last 2010 tax deduction.
