Honoring Our Heroes

Fall 2004

We'd like to honor two HIV community leaders who died recently, both of whom worked with enormous dedication for equitable access to care, treatment, and other necessary services for all people living with HIV -- Charles Clifton and Keith Cylar.

In addition to many other responsibilities, Charles was on the Steering Committee of the national AIDS Treatment Activists Coalition (ATAC) and has been instrumental in helping to organize the North American AIDS Treatment Action Forum (NATAF) for the last several years. Memorial donations can be made to The Charles E. Clifton Memorial Fund by sending a check made payable to Test Positive Aware Network, noting The Charles E. Clifton Memorial Fund on the check. Donations can be sent to:
