While the world moves on, AIDS Walk Atlanta takes a stand. We're here, walking for our friends, our neighbors, our loved ones, and our community. We work to bring attention to this pressing issue, educate and inspire our community to work together, and end the epidemic once and for all. We walk for the nearly 40,000 people living with HIV in Atlanta. We walk to remember those who no longer can. We walk to remind you that you are not alone. We walk for our city. We walk for a change.
