On December 1, 2009, CCTV will participate in the commemoration of World AIDS Day by presenting special programming for a full 24 hours. CCTV will darken Channel 10 and display a continuous scroll of names of Cambridge community members lost to HIV/AIDS. The names have been collected over many years of this commemoration and community members are encouraged to call or email CCTV to add names to this list. A series of special commemorative pieces performed by local artists will run several times throughout each hour. World AIDS Day is recognized around the globe on December 1 each year with events that highlight progress, raise awareness, and remind us of how much work still needs to be done.
