On December 1, ASC joined thousands of organizations across the globe in marking World AIDS Day with events and activities to draw attention to the continuing need for a unified, potent, and compassionate response to the AIDS pandemic.

The day began with an unveiling of the ASC Mosaic of Life, which memorializes those we have lost and honors those who inspire us. The mosaic is on permanent display in ASC's waiting area. Please take a look the next time you visit.

Following a community luncheon, ASC hosted a spirited poetry reading by ASC's Creative Writing Workshop. Earlier in the day, ASC's poets performed their work at the Medical and Health Research Association of New York City (MHRA), which funds several ASC programs.

ASC was also on scene at the Riverside Church World AIDS Day commemoration on Manhattan's Upper West Side. This large-scale event featured ASC Board Member Oliver Martin III (who also serves as the Executive Director of Conscious Contact of New York) and ASC Executive Director Sharen Duke who jointly delivered a speech about "Spiritual Outreach Services (S.O.S.)," ASC's new partnership with faith-based organizations to bring HIV/AIDS prevention education to communities of faith in Manhattan. The event also presented African Drumming, choral performances, a poetry reading by Chardelle Imani Lassiter, HIV testing demonstrations, and much more.
