World AIDS Day 2020

World AIDS Day honors four decades of advocacy for health justice. Today and every day we honor those we’ve lost, those living with HIV, and those who champion our cause.

Here are six great opportunities to get involved in Health Justice for World AIDS Day 2020.

Health Justice for All

We teamed up with visual artist and activist Daniel Arzola to offer these inspiring designs expressing health justice and humanity. To Arzola, “World AIDS Day is a perfect opportunity to share information, to educate, to know what is the vision and the reality that we are living in this moment of humanity with respect to HIV.” Pop over to the SFAF Shop to get yours!
