90 Days Film Screening and Panel Discussion
Commissioner Arrington to Host Screening of “90 Days” Film addressing HIV crisis to be shown at Southwest Arts Center ATLANTA – Fulton County District 5 Commissioners Marvin S. Arrington, Jr. and Natalie Hall will host a screening of the acclaimed film “90 Days”, a film from directors Nathan Hale Williams and Jennia Frederique Aponte and executive producer Jussie Smollett about a young couple confronting the challenges of living and loving with HIV. The film screening and panel discussion will take place at: Monday, September 10, 2018 6:30p.m. to 8:00p.m. Southwest Arts Center 915 New Hope Rd SW Atlanta, GA 30331 “HIV/AIDS is one of the greatest health crises facing our community and we see this as an effort to educate and inform Fulton County about this major issue,” says District 5 Commissioner Marvin S. Arrington, Jr. “I support the mission of this film as it seeks to challenge false preconceptions about HIV and eliminate the stigma of it.” National Organization of Black County Officials (NOBCO) had previously launched a multi-city tour of film screenings of “90 Days” to debunk the stigma of HIV/AIDS facing communities of color specifically focused on African-American women. The Fulton County Board of Health has been actively involved in efforts to confront the spread of HIV in metro Atlanta including the launch of Pre- Exposure Prophylaxis, or PrEP Clinics to stop the spread of HIV and the establishment of #STOPHIVATL, a social marketing campaign to raise awareness of HIV, eliminate stigma and provide information about new preventive medications.
