23 years ago we lost my uncle to complications of AIDS. He lived with HIV for 18 years, when it was not understood, when it was not accepted, and when fear was easier than understanding. The world has come a long way, but we still have a long way to go. We have to continue moving forward, especially when others in unfortunate positions of authority insist on trying to move us back.
For the past few years I've participated in the Portland AIDS Walk, to raise awareness and funds for AIDS prevention and research. Cascade AIDS Project is an incredible organization that did a lot for my uncle and my family, and if you're looking for a place to donate, volunteer, or educate, CAP is the place to go. Let's end this.
Help our team raise money for AIDS Walk Portland that supports the crucial programs and services of Cascade AIDS Project (CAP). We are getting involved in our community's most powerful and enduring response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic and our hope is that you will too. Please join us in supporting this great cause by:
