Share in the Quilt’s powerful stories of activism, love, healing, hope and remembrance and connect the story of HIV/AIDS to the important issues impacting our nation today.

Each year, the National AIDS Memorial partners with community-based organizations across the country to display sections of the Quilt to raise greater awareness about HIV/AIDS impacting people today. Join us in using the power and beauty of the Quilt as a teaching tool for health and social justice and to help our nation ALWAYS remember the names of those who we have lost to AIDS during the past 40 years.


As the largest community arts project in the world, the AIDS Memorial Quilt is a teaching tool to help educate people about the story of AIDS, remember the more than 700,000 U.S. lives lost to disease, and to support local HIV/AIDS service organizations, LGBTQ+ centers, and support awareness about health and social justice issues.

Please direct any questions Holman,Display Coordinator, Brian can help curate the panel selection for your display with Quilt panels from your community -- or other special requests to help connect your display to your organization.

Today, community displays are more important than ever.

The issues our nation has faced in the past year -- a raging pandemic with millions of lives lost, social injustice, health inequity, stigma, bigotry and fear – are also the issues faced throughout four decades of the AIDS pandemic.

With HIV impacting younger populations and communities of color, particularly in southern states, the Quilt can be used to raise greater awareness about prevention and treatments available.

We hope you will partner with the National AIDS Memorial to bring the Quilt to your community.
