Support Adrian Rios Ojeda's AIDS Walk Fundraising Efforts

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

As some of you know, I am proud to serve as a Board member of the AIDS Legal Referral Panel (ALRP), which provides crucial free and low-cost legal services to people living with HIV in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are a full-services non-profit, so we help our clients with issues like unlawful evictions, asset protection, asylum applications, and everything in between. I joined ALRP when I moved to San Francisco to give back to the community and help other LGBT people in meaningful ways.

ALRP’s mission is very personal to me. With gay uncles who lived through the AIDS crisis in San Francisco, I always hear stories about the destruction AIDS had on my community. By 2001, most of the nearly 775k people who had been reported with AIDS in the U.S. had died. And while there’s been significant medical improvements and preventative education, the AIDS crisis is not over: the recent public display of the AIDS Quilt – the largest in San Francisco history – is just one reminder that AIDS is not over and ALRP’s clients still need our support.

• 70% of people living with HIV/AIDS in San Francisco are over age 50, with complex health needs.
• 62% of new HIV infections in San Francisco are among those under the age of 30.
• Over 75% of people living with HIV in San Francisco are currently at risk of becoming homeless.

So in addition to joining the ALRP Board, I am also excited to participate in the San Francisco AIDS WALK on Sunday, July 17 in Golden Gate Park. This annual public event raises funds for an array of essential services for people living with and at risk for HIV.

Please join me in person or in spirit by making a contribution to my Walk, and know that you are making a direct impact right where it is needed most.

Many thanks for helping me reach my goal!
