How will the organization benefit?
Pride is a key timing during the year where smaller agencies like ACO are able to 'punch above their weight' and access larger general demographics. Our outreach and education work is vital in combatting HIV stigma, and in educating our local community with our local community through an ARAO and harm reduction lens.
Volunteer location:
various throughout the city, particularly centrally located events
