getting to zero















Lelavision, Moving In The Spirit and Mausiki Scales Come Together to Promote Free HIV Testing on World AIDS Day: December 1

HIV cases are on the rise, especially among teens and young adults. In order to stem the 70% spike in new HIV cases in young people ages 13-24 in the US, particularly in Atlanta which is one of the epicenters of the spike, a bi-coastal team of artists, scientists, professors,  ministers, nurses and counselors are collaborating on a series of events to take place in Atlanta on World AIDS Day, December 1.

To create a full day of activities, producers Lelavision are working with artists including Moving in the Spirit, Mausiki Scales, Morehouse Freshman Dorm Steppers and cellist Okorie Johnson; collaborating with scientists and professors at Morehouse College, Emory University, Georgia State University and Clark Atlanta University; and coordinating efforts with nurses and staff of Grady Memorial Hospital and AID Atlanta.  Support is also provided by the CDC’s Let’s Stop HIV Together campaign, Sensation Station Network, and Georgia Equality.
