Hi Folks,

As many of you know, I am proud to serve as the Executive Director of the AIDS Legal Referral Panel (ALRP), which provides legal services to people living with HIV in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Many of you have generously supported my fundraising efforts through the San Francisco AIDS Walk and I am reaching out to you, asking for your support once again. This annual event raises funds for an array of essential services for people living with and at risk for HIV. It may well be a foggy Sunday morning in the Park, but I know I will be warmed by the outpouring of love and compassion on display.

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 us.

• 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.

• ALRP’s client base is diverse, and each case we handle is unique.

When people come to ALRP, most often they seek to guard against disruptions to their housing, income, health care services, and immigration status — which are vital to their very survival. In the current environment, the stakes could not be higher, and that’s where ALRP can effectively intervene. In all ways, ALRP acts as a trusted advocate to address the civil legal matters for the most vulnerable people in our city.

I hope you will take a moment to support ALRP (and me personally!) with a donation today. Please choose an amount on the right-hand side of this page.

Many thanks for helping me reach my goal!

Best, Bill
