Got some rockin’ red pumps (or sandals, loafers, wedges, stilettos, etc)? Of course you do!
Put the on and join us Tuesday, March 10 when Positively Living will host the second annual “Rock Your Red Pumps” Luncheon for Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day 11:30 am-1:00 pm in the community room at the Magnolia Avenue Campus of Pellissippi State Community College. The event is sponsored by the National Association of 100 Black Women, Greater Knoxville Chapter.
Speakers will be Dr, Martha Buchanan, Director of the Knox County Health Department, and Dana Hughes, Director of Education and Community Affairs, HIV Prevention, for the Tennessee Department of Health. Women face unique HIV risks and challenges that can prevent them from getting needed care and treatment. Addressing these issues remains critical to achieving an HIV/AIDS-free generation.
Positively Living serves vulnerable groups struggling to survive the challenges created by HIV/AIDS, homelessness, mental illness, addiction, and disabilities. National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is an annual, nationwide observance that sheds light on the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls. This year marks the 10th observance of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.
Women are encouraged to wear red pumps (or any red shoes) and men to wear red ties. There is no charge to attend, but reservations are required. To make your reservation, contact Leslie Blevins at 865-525-1540 ext 228 or [email protected] by March 6, 2015.
And, hey, please don’t let the lack of red shoes stop you from attending. Unless I find a red pair I like and can afford between now and March 10, I’ll be there wearing black shoes—and a red scarf.
