Inspirational video about the National AIDS Memorial Grove
The idea for the National AIDS Memorial was first conceived in 1988 by a small group of San Francisco residents representing a community devastated by the AIDS epidemic, but with no positive way to express their collective grief.
The National AIDS Memorial has provided an opportunity for individuals to honor a life by memorializing them within the beauty of the memorial in perpetuity.
“Thousands of people have died in San Francisco, millions in the world. The point of the National AIDS Memorial Grove is to remember them, one at a time.”
- Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi
