Greater Than AIDS Partners with NAACP
Greater Than AIDS, in partnership with GYT: Get Yourself Tested and AIDSVu, hosted a booth at the 102nd NAACP Annual Convention in Los Angeles July 23-28. Conference attendees shared their Deciding Moments at the Greater Than AIDS Photobooth and got tested for HIV and other STDs at the AIDS Healthcare Foundation booth nearby.
Former chairman of the NAACP Julian Bond shared his Deciding Moment…
…as did California Representative Maxine Waters, member and former chair of the Congressional Black Caucus.
Saturday’s Health Symposium Luncheon, “30 Years and Still Fighting: Commemorating the Fight Against the HIV/AIDS Epidemic,” featured a video produced by Greater Than AIDS for NAACP titled “AIDS in Black America.”
On Monday, Greater Than AIDS ambassador Marteniz spoke on a panel at the Youth & College Health Workshop titled, “Get Hype: Healthy Young People Everywhere.” To get the word out to other young people, he shared his Deciding Moment as well as this video about the importance of getting tested, produced in partnership with MTV and the GYT campaign:
