Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! Please support me by making a donation here to AIDS Walk San Francisco.

Last year Bruce and I added my twin, Lawrence, and his life partner Timothy to the Circle of Friends. Even during these difficult times of living during the era of COVID, I get great joy in visiting the Circle of Friends and seeing their names inscribed.

The National AIDS Memorial Grove is a 10-acre living memorial in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park dedicated to lives touched by AIDS. In October 1996, through the passage of legislation spearheaded by Representative Nancy Pelosi and signed by President Bill Clinton, the 'National AIDS Memorial Grove Act of 1996' designated the Grove a national memorial.

As a member of the board of directors, I take enormous pride in being a steward of our mission: By sharing the story of the struggle against HIV/AIDS, we remember, in perpetuity, the lives lost, we offer healing and hope to survivors, and we inspire new generations of activists in the fight against stigma, denial, and hate, for a just future.

We are committed to ensuring that the lives of people who died from AIDS — and those who fought for justice, provided care, and made discoveries — are never forgotten.

The National AIDS Memorial, The National AIDS Memorial Quilt, and our other programs are facing their most significant financial challenge since the early days of the AIDS crisis. Dozens of our fundraising events, Quilt displays, volunteer workdays, and other gatherings have been canceled or postponed.

We need your help. Please make a donation so that we can continue our work.

Please support our work by donating here to AIDS Walk San Francisco.

Never forget -- Always remember
