This Saturday, December 1, is World AIDS Day, an internationally recognized day that serves as an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died.

At 5 pm on Saturday, Whitman-Walker Health will host its annual candlelight vigil in Dupont Circle. The clinic’s mobile testing unit will also be on-site to provide free HIV testing.

Just down the road, the Lincoln Congregational Temple will hold its candlelight vigil (also on Saturday, Dec. 1) at 7 pm on the front steps of the church, located at 1701 R Street NW.
