Let’s Kick ASS-AIDS Survivor Syndrome is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (EIN: 46-5082959). A grassroots movement of HIV Long- Term Survivors focused on to empowering, engaging, unifying and elevating HIV Long- Term Survivors to reclaim our lives, end isolation, and envisioning a future we never dreamed we’d live.
Based in San Francisco, with chapters in Portland, OR, Palm Springs, CA, Austin, TX and Washington, D.C. and we are rapidly expanding.
Our first town hall was on September 18, 2013, after months of planning. More than 200 packed room at the LGBT Center. (Watch the video of that first town hall here>>http://bit.ly/firsttownhall That was the birth of the HIV Long-Term Survivor Movement and Community Mobilization for Older Adults Living with HIV.
Before our town hall—and the programs that followed—no agency in San Francisco or elsewhere had targeted HIV Long-Term Survivors. We feel great about being the spark that began a movement. However, our goal is and always has been to “Kick ASS.”
We are powerful advocates for changing the mindset from merely surviving to a focus on #HealthyAgingWithHIV.
