Upcoming Events

Red Brunch

Imagine: A world without HIV, when someone will say "I used to have HIV".

At Aunt Rita’s 8th Annual RED Brunch we will do just this, and inspire our community to dream with us to envision a world free of HIV. Our goal is to effectively end HIV in our community by 2030, in line with the UNAIDS Fast Track Cities Initiative.

RED Brunch is a signature event for the diverse communities of Phoenix to celebrate World AIDS Day. Aunt Rita's Foundation, in association with the 13 non-profit benefiting agencies that provide important services to the HIV/AIDS community, produces this annual fundraising event.

Where: Sheraton Grand Phoenix @ 340 N 3rd St, Phoenix, AZ

When: December 14, 2019 @ 10:00am

Art and literature honoring people living with HIV

To commemorate World AIDS Day, library programming during the month of December will celebrate the lives of people living with HIV in Phoenix, remember those who are no longer with us, and tell the history of the city's response to the HIV epidemic. A diverse range of HIV-related art, storytelling, book selections, film presentations, performances, and education sessions will be presented through January 7, 2020. Panels of the National AIDS Quilt will also be displayed.

We want to showcase local talent and encourage artists to submit their work to us to have it considered for the exhibit. Click here and follow the instructions on how to submit your work to be reviewed.

There's a multitude of events planned throughout the month of December, including a "Kick-off Press Conference" by the Mayor's office on Saturday, December 7th from 11:00am to 11:30am.
