Join the Georgia HIV Justice Coalition’s monthly community meeting to discuss efforts to modernize HIV criminal law in Georgia.

Beginning as a Working Group, this group of advocates expanded to the broader-based Georgia Coalition to End HIV Criminalization in 2016. The Coalition is affiliated with the Positive Justice Program, a national network of organizations and individuals working to end HIV criminalization in various states. In 2018, the Coalition rebranded to the Georgia HIV Justice Coalition.

Tonight, Film Love continues its retrospective at the High Museum with selections taken from the 2009 series Civil Rights on Film. These historic films are inspired responses to the challenge of representing segregation and the struggle for black Civil Rights onscreen. Produced in 1953 by the Georgia Department of Health as a training film for midwives, “All My Babies” documents the extraordinary working life of Mary Francis Hill Coley, an African-American midwife from Albany, Georgia. In the film, Coley assists two different families with their children’s births, and the contrast between these two families is the window through which the film subtly addresses inequality in the rural south during the Jim Crow era.

More to Love presents… Wish!

Get ready for your senses to be immersed in the sights, sounds, and scents of middle eastern ambiance as More to Love presents … Wish! In its third year, the organization is focused on giving back to communities around the world.

 

“This year, More To Love is taking a group of volunteers over to Northern Thailand to help do humanitarian work for the Hill Tribes. We will be teaming up with The Mirror Foundation which is a local, established team,” says Chad Wick, found of More to Love. “All money raised will go towards this mission which will include airfare, program fees, etc. Additional funds raised will go towards bedding and malaria nets for the community. Our desire is to take this love that has been kindled here and help set it ablaze not only locally but globally.”

 

From hookah sessions to exotic dancers and performers underneath a Moroccan tent, the event held at Heretic Atlanta will take you on an unforgettable journey. “Heretic has not only been a supporter of MTL from the beginning but has truly gotten behind our mission this year,” said Wick. “There is a team that helps put these events on- their ideas, their contributions, their sacrifices. I feel honored to be a part of it all. I also feel like we are tapping into an energy that is already there within us all, within our community.”

 

The party goes from 4 – 10pm with tickets available online and at the door. DJ Chris Gris will take you higher behind the DJ booth all night long. Entry into this party gets you into the Heretic Atlanta all Saturday night!
