AIDS IN AMERICA - AND A KISS GOODBYE
Sheila Johnson, Producer of "The Other City" a documentary on the HIV/AIDS Crisis in DC explores the meaning of this crisis on World AIDS Day 2010. She begins: "Too often we fail to see -- and worse, fail to face -- what's happening right in our own backyard. As global ambassador for CARE, a leading aid organization fighting global poverty, I traveled to Africa and South America, where the impact of the AIDS epidemic is heartbreaking. Yet the more time I spent overseas, the more I thought about the issue we still face right here at home. December 1st marks the 22nd year recognizing World AIDS Day. On this day, I'd like to urge all Americans to consider how HIV/AIDS is impacting our own country, beginning in our capital city."
