On Thursday, July 21st, the ODAAT HIV Testing Team was in attendance for a discussion hosted by the Frankford Community Development Corporation about the Opioid Epidemic tearing communities in Philadelphia apart. In addition to addressing Opioid problems and abuse, the conversation also highlighted HEP C and HIV. Leadership and Testers from Prevention Point also spoke, in addition to State Representative Jason Dawkins who was there to address community stakeholders and listen to their opinions on these issues.
Huge shout out to our supporters at Quality Bicycle Parts and Colony BMX!! Thanks to these awesome brands and their donations, participants in ODAAT's BMXlife program now have a full set of tools including Allen keys, sockets, ratchets, bike stands and more to keep their bikes running and dialed in. Colony was able to donate grips, hats, a pair of pedals, a stem, and sticker packs to ensure that the kids' bikes are running smooth and looking fresh! Additionally, without the team at SE Bikes and their discount on our initial bike purchase, the program would not be possible! Thanks to all our supporters and sponsors, at-risk youth from low income neighborhoods across Philadelphia now have a BMX share program and improved access to the BMX market and culture!

In light of the recent hardships and violence being carried out among Communities and Police forces across the United States, ODAAT is hosting a special prayer service to call for cooperation, respect and love among the two. We must lead by example if we want to see positive change in our communities and across the country. Join us at the AFCOM center, 2432 W Lehigh Avenue, this Sunday, July 24th from 6-7 PM to show support for your communities and those men and women faced with the challenge of protecting and serving all while working under extreme criticism and resentment from many. We are all brothers and sisters under God and we must work together to love and keep one another safe.
