Dynamic Speakers for AIDS Awareness Month

20 Nov 2018

Dynamic Speakers for AIDS Awareness Month

December 1st kicks off AIDS Awareness Month with World AIDS Day. Leading up to the month of December was the 40th Anniversary of the assassination of Harvey Milk. Harvey Milk was an important leader in the gay community and had a historic impact on the LGBTQ+ rights movement. Many notable LGBTQ+ rights activists, such as his close friend Cleve Jones, were inspired by Milk’s legacy and motivated to fight even harder after his untimely death. APB’s wide array of speakers can help you and your audience get educated on these topics, destigmatize HIV/AIDS and create an open dialogue. Here are some of our most sought-after voices on the subject:
