Tuesday, 7 June
Venue: Church Center, United Nations, 777 United Nations Plaza
The World Council of Churches Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance Interfaith Service is an opportunity to gather in prayer to remember those we know who have died of AIDS-related illnesses; to reflect on our role as faith-based organizations and faith leaders in calling for and then implementing a strong Political Declaration on Ending AIDS; to commit ourselves on the Political Declaration on Ending AIDS; and to celebrate the progress made so far in the global response to AIDS. People from different faith traditions will gather together in this service with representatives from governments, the private sector, people living with HIV and other civil society networks to pray together for the High-Level Meeting on Ending AIDS. The World Council of Churches Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance is committed to strengthening the engagement of faith-based organizations to be more effective in speaking out and acting for justice issues and human rights at the High-Level Meeting on Ending AIDS.
