Laura Brown to Chair (RED) Council With Cynthia Erivo, Murray Bartlett

Laura Brown has teamed with (RED), the organization co-founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver in 2006 to fight AIDS, to form the organization’s new (RED) Creative Council — and she recruited some A-list members to join her.

Brown, founder of LB Media and former editor-in-chief of InStyle Magazine, will serve as chair of the council, which is comprised of individuals spanning fashion, photography, film, design, journalism and
management, with the goal of supporting (RED) in its mission to ensure the disease is preventable and treatable for all.

The Council will meet twice annually and includes Cynthia Erivo, Murray Bartlett, Connie Britton, Allison Williams, Storm Reid, Lake Bell, Kiernan Shipka, Iman and stylist Karla Welch.

“The (RED) Creative Council; a collection of stellar forces from different disciplines — film to photography, fashion to social media — will help (RED) go bigger, bolder and work towards ending the pandemic altogether,” Brown said in a statement. “I can’t stop imagining what the future would look like if AIDS was preventable and treatable for everyone. Imagine what Africa, with equal access to health services, could achieve on a global stage. It’s big thinking, but big thinking is how change happens.”

Bono added, “Laura has a gravitational pull the sun would envy, and this new Creative Council she’s gathered to advise (RED) is brilliant. It was artists, playwrights and other creators who led the fight against AIDS in the ’80s – and we need that kind of creative, disruptive thinking today more than ever. AIDS is now a preventable, treatable disease — a huge victory, but until that’s the case for everyone, everywhere there is a lot more work to do.”

Since (RED)’s founding, it has generated more than $760 million for the Global Fund and helped upwards of 290 million people. While nearly 30 million people are now accessing life-saving treatment today, on person still dies from AIDS every minute, and nearly 600 girls and young women contract HIV
every day, according to the organization.
