April 25, 2013
On May 9, the AIDS Legal Council of Chicago (ALCC) will host a benefit commemorating ALCC's 25 years of service called "A Salute to ALCC." The event will take place at Kirkland and Ellis LLP. ALCC supporters, staff, interns, past and present board members, and individual and corporate sponsors are the expected attendees. ALCC Executive Director Ann Hilton Fisher declared, "The response from the community surrounding our 25th anniversary has been tremendous, and we look forward to a wonderful evening to commemorate the life-saving legal work that the council does each day."
ALCC works to preserve, promote, and protect the legal rights of HIV-impacted women, men, and children in the metropolitan Chicago area. The organization educates the public about HIV-related legal issues, provides direct legal services to people in need, and advocates for social policies that ensure fair treatment for all HIV/AIDS-impacted persons. The council employs a full-time staff of seven legal professionals, and is the only organization of its kind in the Midwest. In 2012, the council assisted over 900 clients with 1,600 cases, and currently serves a large and diverse client base.View Full Article
