Team DC gears up for its 2nd annual long term project at DC Public Libraries

By Egan-McGee on June 7, 2011 in AmeriCorps

AIDS United AmeriCorps Team Washington DC is excited to announce its 2nd annual long term project, joining forces with the DC Public Library system to commemorate 2011 National HIV Testing Day. Team DC will be conducting a two-day HIV testing effort at multiple public libraries in the metro DC area.

Events on Friday, June 24 will consist of smaller-scale testing events at Martin Luther King Jr Memorial, Petworth, Benning, and Anacostia Public Libraries. On June 25 we will host a large-scale testing event of free HIV testing, community resources, condom demonstrations, games, prizes, and a public screening of the community-made documentary ‘The Other City’, which follows several DC residents’ stories of living with HIV/AIDS as well as outlines the epidemic that affects the Washington DC community (www.theothercity.com).

Team DC is currently busy getting the word out to agencies, media, and the community at large. We hope to have the full community’s support as we proceed in our effort to sustain HIV testing in public libraries.
