Thursday: Join Fight for AIDS Memorial Park at St. Vincent's
October 18, 2011
For a year, AIDS activists representing the Queer History Alliance have been working tirelessly toward the creation of a park that would honor the more than 100,000 New Yorkers who have died from AIDS.
It is far from certain, however, that the park will actually get built. This Thursday, the West Village Community Board will vote on a resolution that will affect the proposal for the park. It's critical that advocates show up in droves to show their support.

Time: Thurs., Oct. 20, 6 p.m.
The park, which would be built on the former campus of St. Vincent's Hospital, would become a permanent teaching space to educate people about AIDS. It would also pay tribute to the caregivers and activists who have worked to fight the disease.
