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.

This year on World AIDS Day, the National AIDS Memorial is partnering with Quilt Host organizations from around the country to bring more than 400 sections of the Quilt to communities across the country.


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.

Today, community displays are more important than ever.

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

Connecting the quilt to the stories of hiv/aids today

The Quilt is a powerful teaching tool that shares the story of HIV/AIDS -- the 700,000 lives lost in this country alone – and the hope, healing, activism and remembrance that it inspires.

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.
