Dear Community Partners,
AIDS Vancouver launched their We Care Red Ribbon Campaign at Vancouver City Hall last Monday with Mayor Gregor Robertson and representatives from AIDS Vancouver in attendance to declare November as Red Ribbon Month in Vancouver.
November 1 to December 1, 2010 AIDS Vancouver will promote a month long public awareness campaign called the We Care Red Ribbon Campaign. The Red Ribbon is the symbol of solidarity and hope for those affected by HIV/AIDS. The We Care Red Ribbon Campaign will focus on this integral symbol to promote the two main themes of the campaign: Stigma and Safer Sex Practices.
With weekly public outreach events, the We Care Red Ribbon Campaign will inspire the Vancouver community to “Spread the Love, Stop the Virus.”
Please refer to the attached document that includes all the great events throughout the month.
We would be so grateful to all of you if you could pass on this calendar of events to your networks. We look forward to seeing you all at our events during the month.
Come celebrate the close of The We Care Red Ribbon Campaign at our Red Ribbon Cocktail Reception, Museum of Vancouver November 30th.

HIV/AIDS: Together we can protect each other.
“The Red Ribbon Campaign is an essential part of our city’s efforts to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS,” said Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson. “Vancouver has been home to leadership on HIV/AIDS on a number of fronts, whether it’s raising awareness or providing treatment and support for the many families and individuals affected. With everyone’s support for this year’s campaign, we can raise more public awareness about HIV/AIDS and make sure that the message of prevention gets out."
