The International AIDS Candlelight Memorial

  • North Blvd. Town Square (map)

This globally-recognized memorial is among the world’s oldest HIV/AIDS remembrance, awareness and community action events. The Candlelight Memorial supports individuals living with HIV/AIDS by reducing negative stigma, promoting testing and prevention, and continuing the fight against this disease. This year we recognize the 30th anniversary of the memorial and the theme “in solidarity”. 

For the Baton Rouge observance, HAART has planned a candlelight vigil and a memorial walk through downtown.  Following the walk, there will be jambalaya and cookies!
