Rev. Gregory Manning, a member of the Faith-Based Committee of the 2017 New Orleans HIV Awareness Week, asked that you receive this invitation in the hope that you and leaders of your congregation would join us in an effort to address the needs of those infected/affected with HIV in our community.
The Faith-Based Committee of the 2017 New Orleans HIV Awareness Week extends an opportunity for your church to join us in an endeavor to promote HIV Awareness in New Orleans. HIV has been and continues to be a serious epidemic for the New Orleans Community. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Louisiana had the second largest number of HIV diagnosis rates among adults and adolescents in the United States and New Orleans ranked 3rd in the nation for HIV infection diagnosis for adults and adolescents in 2015. It is time for us to unite as one and take our community back. How can we do this? We can start by joining forces during the upcoming New Orleans HIV Awareness week while letting our presence be seen, letting our voices be heard, and sharing our hearts in love towards this cause.
