National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD) is March 10 and many organizations around the country are preparing for events to raise awareness.
If you cannot make it to an event, social media is always a great place to spread the message. The Red Pump Project, an HIV/AIDS awareness initiative, has long been recruiting bloggers and other social-media producers and users to use digital platforms (and real-time outreach events and educational workshops) in the fight against AIDS. Rock the Red Pump (#RocktheRedPump), its signature campaign, encourages digital divas and allies to mark National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day by generating content and discussions about the pandemic, and, in particular, how the pandemic impacts women.
