Joining the Fight

In support of World AIDS Day, West Babylon Senior High School students, staff and faculty joined together against the fight on Nov. 30. The day is dedicated to the ongoing fight against AIDS and the struggles faced as both a community and a nation.

Wearing their red ribbons, the school was part of the global movement supporting this year’s theme of “Let’s End It,” referring to the isolation, stigma and transmission of the disease. West Babylon High School students put together two performances to educate their peers and their community on HIV/AIDS, how to prevent it, and how to show compassion to those living with the virus. Students took to the auditorium stage for choreographed dance performances, informative skits, inspirational songs and poems and video presentations. 

With more than 34 million people around the world affected by the disease, World AIDS Day is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, support those living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died.
