Reflection on HIV and Humanism: What Does It Have to do With Me?
December first marks the commemoration of World AIDS Day around the globe, but the silence about this deadly infection is frightening. This platform is a reflective response and conversation to the questions: What does HIV have to do with me? How does Humanism and HIV intersect? What do our Humanist values call us to do about this crisis? Join us as we share in a transparent conversation to offer healing, reconciliation, and truth about people living with HIV and how we all can support in the work of de-stigmatization.
Contributions to "Sunday Sharing" are shared between RYSEC and this month's sharing partner as we try to contribute to making a more humane world. This month, we focus on solidarity with neighbors in the wider community.
