This day is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from AIDS-related illness. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first globally recognized health day.
Now in its 31st year, people in the Boulder region will join together with hundreds of other World AIDS Day events across the globe.
Globally, there are an estimated 36.7 million people who have the virus. In 2018, one million people in the US are living with HIV, and 1 in 8 of them don’t know it. In Colorado, there are more than 15,000 people living with HIV, with over 600 people in the Boulder region known to be living with HIV. There is still no vaccine to stop HIV and nearly 40,000 people in the US are diagnosed with HIV each year. There is still a basic lack of knowledge about HIV for many, and associated stigma and discrimination remains a reality for many people living with HIV.
Every year on the first Saturday in December, BCAP joins with KBCO and Food Bank of the Rockies for the one-day, limited edition sale of the KBCO Studio C CD release. 2018 marked KBCO’s 30th anniversary and was celebrated with a double CD set! BCAP recruits volunteers to be present at the sales sites (select area Whole Food stores) to collect donations and thank folks who come out to purchase these one-of-a-kind CDs. If you are interested in volunteering with BCAP for this event, contact Sarah Annecone BCAP's Development Director.
The International AIDS Candlelight Memorial is held every third Sunday in May. BCAP and the Interfaith AIDS Coalition of Boulder co-host a local commemoration. This annual event of remembrance is an opportunity for activists, family members, and community supporters to gather to honor those lost, and to raise consciousness about the continuing challenges faced by those living with or impacted by HIV.
The Candlelight Memorial program includes a reception at BCAP, followed by a silent walk through downtown Boulder and the reading of names of individuals lost to AIDS-related illnesses.
The International AIDS Candlelight Memorial, coordinated by the Global Network of people living with HIV, is one of the world’s oldest and largest grassroots mobilization campaigns for HIV awareness. Started in 1983, this memorial is led by a coalition of approximately 1,200 community organizations in 115 countries.
