HIV Activism Roots: ACT UP

NBC Special Flashback on The AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power reminds us all how we are living with HIV

ACT UP is more than a group of loud activists that changed the history of the HIV and AIDS epidemic–even though that is exactly what they continue to do.  ACT UP is the reason that many of us living with HIV are actually living.
