In commemoration of World AIDS Day, the Rothko Chapel hosts a morning observance to show support and stand in solidarity with the millions of people living with and impacted by HIV/AIDS.
The morning program includes live music, personal testimonials, and guided reflection. Jeffrey Campbell, Chief Program Officer at AIDS Foundation Houston will share information on the state of the battle against HIV in Houston and Texas. Shadawn McCants, owner and Clinical Director of Know and Live Counseling and Consulting, will provide first-person testimonial on living with HIV and issues facing the HIV community. Moments of reflection will be led by Rev. Troy Treash, Senior Pastor of Resurrection MCC, and music will be performed throughout by Kelsey Sham on harp.
Established by the World Health Organization in 1988 as the first ever global health day, World AIDS Day takes place on the 1st day of December each year. It is an occasion to reflect on the millions of people who have died from HIV/AIDS since the virus was first identified in 1984, and a time to consider how to better care for the 38 million people living with HIV/AIDS, and their families, friends and loved ones who have been deeply impacted.
