World AIDS Day March & Candlelight Vigil

Join us this year for World AIDS Day on the steps of San Francisco city hall to remember those we’ve lost to the HIV/AIDS crisis and to issue a call to action for justice for our communities.

We will have a series of speakers to lift up the voices of people living with HIV and to visibilize the challenges our communities still face 40 years after the onset of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Please bring a photo of loved ones you’d like to remember. We will provide candles for the candlelight vigil.

Following our speakers at City Hall, we will march together from City Hall to St. John’s the Evangelist Episcopal Church for the AIDS Memorial Quilt display, dinner and Revival Dance.

Speakers include:

Rickey Beard, Black Brothers Esteem (BBE) member and leader of the Goodwill Team.

Ms. Billie Cooper, TransLife Founder and community activist.

Monica Gandhi MD, MPH, Infectious Diseases doctor, Professor of Medicine and Associate Chief in the Division of HIV, Infectious Diseases, and Global Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF); Director of the UCSF Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) and the Medical Director of the HIV Clinic (“Ward 86”) at San Francisco General Hospital; with research focusing on HIV and women and adherence measurement in HIV treatment and prevention and most recently, on how to mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nikos Pecoraro, HIV Advocacy Network (HAN) activist and harm reduction advocate.
