Ford Hall Forum Discussion

Kevin Cranston, Dazon Dixon Diallo, Julie Davids, and Guillermo Chacon. With Rebecca Haag

Thursday, September 30, 6:30pm to 8:00pm
Old South Meeting House

Kevin Cranston, Director of the Massachusetts Bureau of Infectious Disease; Dazon Dixon Diallo, President of SisterLove, Julie Davids, Founder and Co-Director of CHAMP(Community HIV/AIDS Mobilization Project); and Guillermo Chacon, President and CEO of the Latino Aids Commision, converse with moderator Rebecca Haag, President and CEO of Aids Action Committee, about the ongoing problem of HIV transmission. As death from AIDS become less common, AIDS service organizations must transform their services and prevention programs to follow a more radical approach. Why are there 56,000 new infections in the U.S. every year when we know what causes HIV, how it's transmitted, and how to treat it? Join us to discuss how to stop the spread of HIV by addressing the underlying social injustice of racism, sexism, homophobia, violence, substance abuse and poverty.

Presented in collaboration with Old South Meeting House, a museum and National Historic Landmark dedicated to the free exchange of ideas, as part of the Partners in Public Dialogue series.
