Keep the promise on Aids.
MARCH ON WASHINGTON
On July 22nd, 2012 thousands of advocates joined on the grounds of the Washington Monument in Washington D.C. to participate in the “Keep the Promise on HIV/AIDS” March & Rally as a precursor to the opening ceremonies of the XIX International AIDS Conference. Activities included keynote speeches from former U.S. Congressman Ambassador Andrew Young, civil rights leader Reverend Al Sharpton, broadcaster and author Tavis Smiley, prominent democratic intellectual Dr. Cornel West and – in a special message from South Africa – the highly-regarded human rights activist and Nobel Peace Laureate, Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
