To the backdrop of Fahrenheit Chicago, Serette  B. King ( Zoliy Miyake-Mugler) and Terry Dudley from Howard Brown Health and David Dodd from Chicago Black Gay Men’s Caucus share what inspiring action means to them, and how their work helps inspire action within Chicago’s LGBTQ+ and HIV communities.

Since its inception in 2001, more than 20,000 community members have gathered at #aidsrunwalkchicago to help drive an end to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The event has raised over $5 million that directly benefiting programs and services improving the lives of Chicagoans living with and vulnerable to HIV. With the help of 30+ CommunityDirect partners, TOGETHER, we can end the HIV epidemic in Illinois by 2030.
