International AIDS Candlelight Memorial 2012 - Promoting Health and Dignity Together

You are invited to join us on Thursday, May 24th from 6:00- 7:00 pm in Shriver Hall for the first Peace Corps community-wide observance of the International AIDS Candlelight Memorial. 

The Memorial serves as a reminder of the great progress that has been made, but also of the toll that the pandemic continues to take in our own Peace Corps family and in the communities where Volunteers serve. Sections of the AIDS Quilt commemorating RPCVs who have died of AIDS will be on display for the memorial.

As is customary at AIDS Candlelight Memorials, the memorial will include a reading of names of family and friends who have died of AIDS. If you would like to commemorate a loved one, please send the first name and city or country of birth or service to For more information on this event, contact Laara Manler,
