About Red Party
Since Red Party was established in 2007, it has grown to become the largest student-run charity in Western Australia. Each year we engage over 2000 people in HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns and raise over $30,000 to support people in Sub-Saharan Africa living with these conditions. This year we are supporting Oxfam Australia's Securing Rights in the Context of HIV/AIDS program in Zimbabwe, and advocating to reduce the stigma faced by people with HIV/AIDS in our local community.
Our aim is to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS in the Perth community through engaging events and campaigns. Each year this culminates with Red Party, a fantastic party with a red theme in recognition of the international colour of AIDS
Our principle advocacy event, Red Aware Week, takes place in late August and involves the Perth community in raising awareness about HIV/AIDS. One of the most powerful elements of this campaign is our Paint the Town Red campaign, with prominent Perth landmarks lighting their buildings red as a visible symbol of the community’s ongoing support for this issue
