The NYC AIDS Memorial honors more than 100,000 New Yorkers who have died of AIDS. It is the first highly visible public memorial since the beginning of the fight against AIDS, some 35 years ago.
The Memorial acknowledges the contributions of caregivers and activists who mobilized to provide care for the ill, fight discrimination, lobby for medical research, and alter the drug approval process. Additionally, the Memorial also aims to inspire and empower current and future activists, health professionals and people living with HIV in the continuing mission to eradicate the disease.
Many consider the Memorial’s location as the symbolic epicenter of the epidemic and the mobilization against it. Through our collaboration with Jenny Holzer, we aim to donate $42,000 to support the NYC AIDS Memorial and its noble cause.
