Why

The story of AIDS is also a story of dignity, social justice, humanity, and the thousands of people who fell, fought, and provided care and comfort.

The AMP: AIDS Memorial Pathway was born out of a desire to recognize those lost during the AIDS crisis in King County and our communities’ response to this crisis.

The goals of this project are to create a place to honor those who died, those who fought, and those who continue the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Their stories must not be forgotten.
