2013 marks the 25th Anniversary of the AIDS Law Project of Pennsylvania, the nation’s only independent public-interest law firm dedicated to AIDS and HIV. We have risen to the defense of more than 35,000 people free of charge, and we’ve educated more than 37,000 others on AIDS-related legal issues.
Over the next year, we’ll have a variety of ways for you to help us defend the rights of Pennsylvanians with HIV/AIDS, culminating in a gala Silver Anniversary event in the fall. Our initial effort, “The 25 Things We’d Like for our 25th Anniversary,” is now on our front page.
Stay tuned for more information on how you can continue to show your support!
Thanks for supporting Bar AIDS:
On Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012, Bar AIDS Philadelphia returned, with participating coffeehouses and bars donating a portion of the day’s proceeds to four local AIDS service organizations: ActionAIDS, the AIDS Law Project of Pennsylvania, Mazzoni Center and Philadelphia FIGHT.
