We are committed to:
- Providing a creative means for remembering and healing
- Increasing public awareness of the AIDS epidemic
- Assisting with HIV/AIDS prevention education
- Helping to raise funds for community based AIDS service organizations
We are a local chapter of The NAMES Project Foundation/AIDS Memorial Quilt.
