The health organization will hold its annual candlelight vigil on the sixth floor of its health center at 1525 14th St. NW at 6 p.m.
The ceremony will begin with an introduction from Whitman-Walker Health’s director of community relations, Justin Goforth, and a song from a member of the Gay Men’s Chorus. After remarks from three Whitman-Walker patients, attendees will light candles, participate in an interfaith prayer and take a moment of silence.
Whitman-Walker in previous years held the vigil in Dupont Circle and at its Elizabeth Taylor Medical Center. This will be the first ceremony inside the organization’s new health center on 14th Street.
