Caribbean American

Caribbean American Movers and Shakers has chosen AID Atlanta as it’s organization of focus for their annual awards event on September 25th.
Our executive Director, Nicole Roebuck will be speaking at the event covering AID Atlanta's work in the communities most impacted by HIV infections and our testing and prevention outreach programs to get education, counseling and linkage to care services to those most vulnerable. Georgia ranks 5th in the nation for new HIV infections and it is these important civic partnerships such as the Caribbean American Movers and Shakers that can help us reduce infections and make the Atlanta metro area a healthier community allowing people to live their best lives. 

OUTREACH

An Event with a Purpose

This year’s event will bring awareness of the HIV/AIDS pandemic with our civic partnership with AID Atlanta, which has been providing HIV/AIDS-related services, since 1982.

In the face of fear and bigotry, founding members volunteered their time to provide support and education.  The organization quickly expanded to engage Black and Latino populations and meet the evolving needs of our diverse community in response to the epidemic.  Today, AID Atlanta offers a broad range of services and has grown to be the most comprehensive AIDS service organization in the Southeast.

Stigma still fueling rising rate of HIV among blacks

Nearly half of all gay and bisexual black men in the U.S. will be diagnosed with HIV — the virus that causes AIDS — during their lifetime, according to a report last month by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.

Since that announcement, I’ve been waiting for some logical point to declare itself, something that might help me frame a conversation around that startling revelation.

Stories Power Attack on AIDS

Omari Hargrove is a 17-year-old rising senior at the Carver School of Arts. One day, he told me, he’d like to be a filmmaker or cartoonist or music producer. Like others his age, he’s not yet sure which.

Perhaps all three, he said.

One day, he said, he didn’t much feel like going to see his adviser, but on his way there, he happened upon a class where Dan Enger was speaking to fellow classmates.

Right away, Omari noticed something different. The students were hanging on Enger’s every word.

Why?
