Selma AIR, Inc. has partnered with the Organpi Farmhouse Café to host a conversation about HIV and its impact on African-American women in recognition of National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on Feb. 7 from 5:30 pm until 7:30 pm.

“This event will serve to bring together women from all walks of life to discuss the impact of HIV on African-American women and our families,” said Selma AIR Executive Director Mel Prince.  “We carefully chose a more intimate venue where participants would not only feel at home but also be able to enjoy some of the more social aspects of the gathering.”

The two-hour event will feature a presentation of HIV facts and statistics as well as an opportunity for participants to talk about the current trends.
