#TBT to all of the truly incredible moments and all of the beautiful people who have joined @Keep A Child Alive and me for our annual #KCABlackBall to support our programs that provide lifesaving care for children and families affected by HIV.
I am excited for Black Ball 2014 and am inspired because I KNOW we can be an AIDS-free generation! PS: If you are around NYC, check out my Twitter today for details on how you can enter for a chance to win two tickets for this year’s Black Ball next week ;-)
It’s my son’s birthday today which makes me feel even more in solidarity with the parents of the Chibok girls in Nigeria who were abducted 6 months ago today by Boko Haram. They are still missing!!! At the moment of this rally those parents were marching on the Presidential Palace in Abuja to call on Goodluck Jonathan to pay attention to what can be done to free those girls from a situation too horrible to imagine. It’s difficult and it won’t be easy but we have to keep the pressure on because these girls represent all the girls being kept from an education, they represent all girls who are looked upon as property and they represent rape and violence against women as a weapon of war all over the world! The We Are Here Movement is about direct action! Sign your name to join the movement and sign the petition to bring back our girls!! #BringBackOurGirlsNOW #weareheremovement
