COP 24/7, Hot, Live and Otherwise in 2013

COP Executive Producer: A Community Multi-Task Force

Let's face it, I tend to be a busy guy for the most part. Although I'm in the seventh year of producing COP 24/7, I also wear a few other hats that many of you may or may not know about. Currently I"m the community Co-Chair of the Arkansas HIV Planning Group which is a collaborative entity with the Arkansas Department of Health with it HIV/AIDS programming. It is the groups charge to decrease infection rates while seeking to monitor the implementation of high impact prevention activities. If that  were not enough, then I also serve as the Chief Operating Officer for The Living Affected Corporation which is a community based development organization dedicated to dealing with health disparities in marginalized communities. As a ADH sub grantee, the organization is operates to provide HIV/AIDS testing  and counseling while addressing a variety of LGBTQ health equity issues in both the central region and other outlying counties. Below I'm sharing a video of colleagues, K.Holmes and Founder and CEO, Diedra Levi. This material was apart of our 2012 World AIDS Day engagements citing numerous issues concerning HIV/AIDS, especially the level of social determinants such as housing, employment, food, treatment and education, that directly affect those living with HIV or AIDS. Therefore as you can see I'm not only tapping it out on the keyboards but taking my activism hot, live and otherwise. For more info on LA Corp, check out or call me at 379-8203. We are always seeking volunteers and individuals to make thing happen. Let me hear from you today!!!!
