WORLD AIDS DAY MOVIE SCREENING AT URI PROVIDENCE CAMPUS

PROVIDENCE, RI – Partners in Learning about AIDS (PL-AIDS), Isis Storm and the URI Alumni of Color Network invite you to join us for a film screening on the URI Providence/CCE campus on Wednesday, December 1, 2010, World AIDS Day, to increase awareness about HIV/AIDS and its related issues. Our goal is not to host a large seminar, but to mainstream the topic of HIV/AIDS by making a movie available to students who may be at the campus in-between classes and to community members in the downtown area.  Refreshments will be served, and the event is open to URI students and the public.
