Memorials Have Helped our Nation Heal from Devastating Loss

For the past four decades, communities have come together across the country to establish AIDS memorials to honor the lives lost, help heal, and to share the story of HIV/AIDS so we always remember. Since the first cases of AIDS were reported in the U.S. 40 years ago, more than 700,000 people have died in the United States alone.

This interactive shows where there is an AIDS Memorial in your community and provides information on how you can learn more, get involved and support local HIV/AIDS organizations.

We are the 50,000 sections of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, with 110,000 names hand-stitched into each 3 ft by 6 ft panel. We are a memorial that remembers those who died of AIDS and share their stories through powerful educational, storytelling, events and community programs. Help support these programs and our mission.
