NATIONAL NATIVE AMERICAN AIDS PREVENTION CENTER (NNAAPC) - www.nnaapc.org

2013 Honoring the Red Ribbon Award

July 21, 2013 - NNAAPC is officially soliciting nominations for the 2013 Honoring the Red Ribbon Award. This award honors the memory of Marty Lynn Prairie (1958-2001) (Lakota), who tirelessly gave of his time, talent, and spirit to combat HIV and AIDS in Native communities. Marty was a long time friend and ally of NNAAPC who, through his commitment to HIV/AIDS education and prevention in Indian Country and throughout the Unites States, became a well-known HIV and Harm Reduction advocate. Like Marty, there are Native professionals dedicated to HIV/AIDS prevention and demonstrate outstanding leadership - on the local level, on the Tribal level, on the state level and/or nationally. We need to acknowledge and honor these leaders. Take a moment and ask yourself, "Who has made a difference?"

Please download and complete this Honoring the Red Ribbon Award nomination form or fill out our online version: http://www.nnaapc.org/news/honoringredribbonform.htm . Nominees must demonstrate a strong personal and/or professional commitment to HIV/AIDS prevention and advocacy in Native communities.

Any questions may be directed to: Michaela Grey (Diné), mgrey@nnaapc.org, Phone: (720) 382- 2244, Ext. 304

Nomination deadline is August 1, 2013. The 2013 Award recipient will be notified by August 2, 2013.
