On Tuesday (August 31), Variety reported DaBaby has met with a group of nine U.S. HIV organizations who sent him an open letter on August 4 to meet and discuss facts about HIV and hear personal stories of people living and thriving with HIV. Over 125 organizations signed on to support the open letter to the Grammy-nominated rap star. The open letter to DaBaby was our way to extend him the same grace each of us would hope for, wrote the group in a press release. Our goal was to call him in instead of calling him out. We believed that if he connected with Black leaders living with HIV that a space for community building and healing could be created. We are encouraged he swiftly answered our call and joined us in a meaningful dialogue and a thoughtful, educational meeting.
