AIDS group to hold candlelight memorial

Citizen Staff Writer



The Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation will hold a local candlelight memorial Sunday as part of the worldwide 26th International AIDS Candlelight Memorial.

The event will be at Himmel Park, near East Speedway and North Tucson Boulevards. It will start at 5:30 p.m. with music and performances, and the candles will be lit at 7:30 p.m.

The memorial is aimed at reducing stigma and discrimination associated with AIDS; ensuring access to treatment; increasing resources to HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis; and promoting greater involvement by affected communities, SAAF said in a news statement.

Similar candlelight memorials will be held in more than 1,200 communities worldwide.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
