From the White House Office of Public Engagement:
Jury Candelario, Director of Asian Pacific AIDS Intervention Team, has been selected ‘Champion of Change’ honoree, as part of President Obama’s “Winning the Future” Initiative. (www.whitehouse.gov/champions). The recognition is part of highlighting both the 30th Anniversary of the HIV/AIDS pandemic and the work Mr. Candelario has been doing with regards to the HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention. Selected key community leaders will participate and share their work and stories with Administration officials and the public through the White House website and through a roundtable with experts, offering innovative solutions as we enter the 30th year of the pandemic.
Each week, the “Winning the Future” initiative will feature a group of Americans, businesses or organizations who embody ‘Innovate, Educate, and Build’. Different groups are highlighted each week ranging from educators to entrepreneurs to community activists. The Office of Public Engagement will host an event at the White House to honor those who are “Winning the Future” and further empower and inspire other members of their respective communities. The roundtable is scheduled at the White House on May 31, 2011.
At this event, agency representatives and White House Offices will participate and host a discussion on amplifying best practices learned in each area. Paired with each White House event, Jury will be featured on the White House website.
