Hartford activists to mark World AIDS Day


HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Activists, advocates and people living with the AIDS virus are marking the 25th annual World AIDS Day with events in Hartford.

This year's program on Sunday will include an overview of HIV in Connecticut and Hartford, as well as testimonials from people living with the AIDS virus. A theater presentation, poetry, music and food are also planned on Dec. 4 at The Artists Collective in Hartford.

Shawn Lang, director of public policy at AIDS Connecticut said there is "no end in sight" and advocates are "calling on everyone to commit to a renewed sense of energy and urgency."

Lang's group estimates there are nearly 2,000 people living with AIDS in the city of Hartford.

The theme of this year's World AIDS Day is to end all new infections.
