2020 has been a particularly challenging year for Thunder Bay and Northwestern Ontario as it has for all of Ontario. With strict social-distancing requirements, many of us cannot hold our usual World AIDS Day  events, which is why this year, Elevate NWO and the OAHAS Thunder Bay site have decided to bring their event into a virtual space.
 
The one silver lining of doing it this way is that geography is not a barrier. Many more people can participate online and they extend an invitation to everyone across Ontario to join the virtual memorial event. This event will promote HIV/AIDS awareness and remind all of us of those we have lost.

Go here to join Elevate and OAHAS Thunder Bay on Tuesday, December 1st, from 2:00 to 3:00 pm. Please note that there will be a virtual smudge, candlelight vigil, drum songs, and a musical performance by local Thunder Bay musician Nancy Freeborn of Morning Light.
