Someone Cares, an Atlanta-based HIV/AIDS advocacy and prevention organization for African-American and Latino men who have sex with men, will be honored by the Black AIDS Institute at a Thursday night event at the Loudermilk Center in downtown Atlanta.
The event coincides with National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, Feb. 7, an annual observance of the ongoing struggle with the disease in African-American communities.
“We are a outreach agency,” Edwin Kennedy-Worthington, director of programs for Someone Cares, said today by phone. “That's what we pride ourselves on. We're not going to reach the population by sitting behind a computer.”
