Thirty years ago this month, the first chapter of the militant AIDS activist organization ACT UP was founded in New York City. At the same time, the AIDS Action Pledge was forming in San Francisco, emerging from earlier AIDS protest groups in the city, including Citizens for Medical Justice, Mobilization Against AIDS and the ARC/AIDS Vigil.

The first in a new monthly series called «Fighting Back,» this intergenerational discussion will feature veterans of those early groups as well as contemporary organizers of LGBTQ nonviolent direct action who will lead a public forum exploring the effectiveness of such efforts in creating change.

Cofacilitated by Crystal Mason and Mike Shriver, both longtime activists and veterans of ACT UP/San Francisco.

The event will be ASL interpreted by Xavier Caylor and Aaron Brace.
