My old friend, who as a youth and younger young adult joined me at YRUU youth conferences and church in Portland occasionally, graces this week’s edition of Newsweek. How AIDS Transformed a Nation is in newstands today.
Jennifer Jako and I met in high school, and have remained friends ever since. She has been an activist and speaker for HIV/AIDS since she found out she contracted the virus at 18, including speaking at UU functions. Today she lives in Portland, and is expecting a baby this summer. We’re so excited to have our kids so close together!
Check it out, and friends, Jen welcomes your comments and notes here.
