It has been 30 years of the HIV Epidemic in America, and many of us have been there since the beginning. Join us as we remember those we've loved and lost, and hear stories from long time survivors.
We Are A Community...
The Phoenix AIDS Candlelight Vigil is a collaboration of HIV Community Members & Agencies coming together to remember those who we have lost to this deadly disease. Held annually on World AIDS Day.
The event was first held on December 1st, 2014. We invite you to view the photos below, or sign up for more information about next year's event.
