AIDS Law Project receives Kuromiya Award for “fighting fearlessly”

The AIDS Law Project of Pennsylvania is proud to announce that its staff has been awarded the 2012 Kiyoshi Kuromiya Award for Justice. The award, sponsored by Philadelphia FIGHT, was presented at the AIDS Education Month opening reception on May 31, 2012, at the College of Physicians in Philadelphia. Named for the longtime HIV and civil rights activist who died of complications from AIDS in 2000, the award honors the AIDS Law Project’s staff “for more than 20 years of fighting fearlessly for the legal rights of those living with HIV, educating thousands about AIDS-related issues, and working on multiple levels of government to achieve fair laws and policies for those living with and affected by the virus.” Details can be found at
