New York City AIDS Memorial
The New York City AIDS Memorial is a nonprofit organization founded as a grass-roots advocacy effort in early 2011 by Christopher Tepper and Paul Kelterborn. Located on a triangular site that was most recently part of the former St. Vincent’s Hospital campus, the New York City AIDS Memorial advocates for more than 100,000 New Yorkers who have died of AIDS. It also acknowledges the contributions of caregivers and activists who mobilized to provide care for the ill, fight discrimination, lobby for medical research, and alter the drug approval process.
The Memorial aims to inspire and empower current and future activists, health professionals and people living with HIV in the continuing mission to eradicate the disease through the maintenance of a permanent, architecturally significant memorial as well as through educational and cultural programming.
