Local residents are concerned about the prevalence of HIV/AIDS in the African-American community and they want to tackle this situation with awareness and education.

"A Call to Action" - a community forum about this topic will be held this Thursday Nov. 17 at the Northwest Neighborhood Center, 2160 N. 6th Avenue from 5 pm to 8 pm.

It's presented by the Coalition for African American Health and Wellness in collaboration with several other organizations.
