December 1st is World AIDS Day, a chance to not only memorialize those who have died from AIDS, but to promote activism, education, and community engagement on all matters related to HIV/AIDS. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day, and this year, Philadelphia-area organizations will offer a host of events that will feature the AIDS Memorial Quilt and the AIDS Fund Traveling Timeline titled “1981 Until It’s Over.” We rounded up local 21 events where guests can view the quilt, the timeline, and, in some cases, both, along with speaking engagements and workshops of how to add a square to the quilt.
