400 Umbrellas in Richmond (World AIDS Day – Brown’s Island, RVA)

On December 1, 2011, RVA Remembers held a breath taking ceremony on Brown’s Island (Richmond, Virginia) in observance of World AIDS Day. 400 red umbrellas opened up at 12:00 PM in the formation of a ribbon. The volunteers stood in solidarity for 9 minutes and 30 seconds, symbolizing the time period that an American is newly infected with HIV.  Please watch this video and share it with as many people as possible because 30 years is simply long enough. We must do what we can to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS. Congrats to the Fan Free Clinic and RVA Remembers for such a powerful display. Thanks to all participated in this video and helped make it happen.  The Cheats Movement is proud to present: 400 Umbrellas in Richmond.
