In Baltimore City, one in forty two people are HIV positive and the number continues to grow. Local, state and regional organizations want to change that trend and are campaigning for a “Getting to Zero” initiative— ZERO AIDS related deaths; ZERO new HIV infections; and ZERO stigma and discrimination.
This year, numerous non-profits, churches, government agencies and community groups will gather in and around Baltimore on December 1, 2015, World AIDS Day, to hold a candlelight vigil between 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. at various locations through the city listed below:
