"Think how much has changed…you demanded to be treated with dignity and with equity.  Those voices, those stories are invaluable…we’re going to finish this fight."

- President Joe Biden

New HIV infections in the U.S. fell about 8% from 2015 to 2019, but Black and Latino communities — particularly gay and bisexual men within those groups — continue to be disproportionately affected, according to the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data.

"It was gentle rain, no speeches or music, just thousands of people reading these names on this patchwork of placards up on that wall. And I thought to myself, It looks like some kind of quilt, and I thought this is the symbol we should take."

- Cleve Jones, NPR interview 2016

  In 2019, 26% of new HIV infections were among Black gay and bisexual men, 23% among Latino gay and bisexual men, and 45% among gay and bisexual men under the age of 35. African American and Hispanics/Latinos account for the largest increases in new HIV diagnoses, 42% and 27% respectively.

“This disease is resilient and resourceful, ever mutating to escape destruction.  We must be equally resourceful in our efforts to combat HIV/AIDS as we work to finally achieve an AIDS-free generation.”

- Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, World AIDS Day 2019
