CHICAGO (October 9th, 2013) – On October 10, 2013, The NAACP Chicago Southside and Westside presents [The Black Church & HIV] The Social Justice Imperative.

Black churches from around the city of Chicago will partake in the on-going discussion about these health issues like HIV/AIDS that plague the African American community. 

“The NAACP National Health Department is committed to addressing Health and HIV as a social justice issue while continuing the fight for health equity,” mentions President Rose Joshua. 

Our goal is to have well informed clerics make their churches into venues for teaching both spiritually and physically healthier lifestyles to their congregants.
