Mission: The purpose of National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) is to get Blacks educated about the basics of HIV and AIDS, to encourage people to be tested for HIV, and to know available resources within our community. In the Tallahassee area, approximately 30% of people identify as Black and yet more than 75% of HIV infections every year are from black men and women. In 2016, 1,417 black people in our community were living with HIV which makes up more than 1% of the black population in Tallahassee.
Objective: Our goal is to coordinate a successful Fashion Show that incorporates HIV/AIDS awareness messages, HIV rapid testing, and resources information from our local community based organizations. This will be a free event that will be geared towards the black community and incorporate black history month themes. We would like to have more than 200 attendees, 25+ HIV tests completed, 300 condoms distributed, 20+ models, 3 artists/performers and 3+ organizations
