The AMP: AIDS Memorial Pathway stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and the protests calling out against systemic racism. The reality that HIV/AIDS disproportionately impacts black people (over 40% of new HIV/AIDS diagnoses) in communities that have the least access to testing and treatment, is proof of the continuing inequities. We support Black-led organizations fighting against these injustices, including our local partners POCAAN and AARTH.
In 2020, the plaza over Seattle’s Capitol Hill Light Rail Station and the north edge of Cal Anderson Park will become home to The AMP: AIDS Memorial Pathway.
The AMP, community driven and collaboratively funded, will use public art to create a physical place for remembrance and reflection; utilize technology to share stories about the epidemic and the diverse community responses to the crisis; and provide a call to action to end HIV/AIDS, stigma, and discrimination.
