Why Is Jeff Walking?
I am participating in the 2019 San Francisco AIDS Walk to support AIDS Legal Referral Panel (ALRP), of which I have served on the Board of Directors for almost eight years. I am currently serving as Co-Chair of the Board. ALRP and its cause are very important to me, and your sponsorship for this year's AIDS Walk would mean a tremendous amount to me. I have set an ambitious fundraising goal of $3,500, and I need your help in order to reach it!
What Is ALRP?
ALRP is a non-profit that provides free and low-cost legal services to people living with HIV/AIDS. And this year is ALRP's 36th year of service to the community. With its dedicated staff of attorneys and its Panel of over hundreds of volunteer attorneys, ALRP handles thousands of cases and leverages over a million dollars of donated legal services each year. ALRP helps people stay in their homes, keep their jobs, remain in the U.S. legally, and live and die with dignity and respect.
Isn't AIDS over?
AIDS is not over. There are more people living with HIV than ever before. One in three gay men in San Francisco is living with the disease. The demand for ALRP's service is greater than ever. At the same time funding for HIV/AIDS services is facing dramatic cuts at every level.
