On August 6th, 2015 Common blessed the stage at the Aids Health Care “Vote 2 End HIV” event at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. The event was sponsored by Reed for Hope Foundation, LoveHealthy.Org and AID Atlanta and served as not just a concert but a rally that will build on the successful “AIDS Is A Civil Rights Issue” national public awareness campaign created by AHF in 2014. That campaign brought together Rev. Al Sharpton, the National Action Network, local churches and community groups to honor the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1965. Its purpose is to foster dialogue on ending HIV and sexual stigma within black families, and encourage community-wide testing and treatment.
