Red Lock Campaign

The Red Lock Campaign is an HIV Awareness initiative led by the Group Health Centre HARP team. HIV/AIDs stigma is an unfortunate reality. Our main focus is to help our community educate themselves to better understand the facts around those living with HIV/AIDS and actively show Love, Hope and Acceptance. Remember, despite differences, you are the key to making the world a more loving, hopeful and accepting place for the sake of all people.

When Are the Locks Available?
HIV Awareness Week (Last Week of Nov)
World AIDS Day Dec 1st

Once You Find a Lock
