Date:12/1/2008

Web-based project educates and empowers through personal stories across the South

WASHINGTON, Dec. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Washington D.C.'s AIDS rate is more than ten times higher than the national average in the United States. Of people living with AIDS in Washington, D.C., 82 percent are African American. On Thursday, December 4, in connection with World AIDS Day earlier in the week, the Southern AIDS Coalition (SAC) and Test for Life will host a demonstration and discussion of the Southern AIDS Living Quilt (www.livingquilt.org), a website featuring real-life video stories from southern women on the frontlines of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The Living Quilt project brings to life the impact of HIV/AIDS in the South, highlighting the disproportionate impact on women, particularly women of color, and providing critical information about routine testing and the importance of early diagnosis.

About the Southern AIDS Coalition

The Southern AIDS Coalition was formed in 2001 as a membership organization of government representatives, corporations, and community advocates. This unique partnership is borne from the burgeoning numbers of people in the South whose new infection rates are much higher than the rest of the U.S. population. SAC highlights that federal funds do not meet the needs of those living with HIV in the South and are not equally distributed across the country. SAC works to provide southern citizens an opportunity for adequate HIV/AIDS prevention information, treatment, and health care. SAC is a federally recognized 501(c)3.
