Seattle AIDS Memorial Pathway receives $50,000 grant from Pride Foundation

SEATTLE (September 21, 2018) - The AMP: AIDS Memorial Pathway is pleased to announce it has received a $50,000 grant from the Pride Foundation.

'This extraordinary gift will enable us to move closer to realizing our goal of creating a physical place for remembrance and reflection, education about how the crisis years affected our region, and calls to action to end HIV/AIDS, stigma, and discrimination,' said the AMP's steering committee chair, Tom Rasmussen.

'We are pleased to support this project that is rooted in our journey and struggles,' shared Wakefield, the Pride Foundation's board president. 'We are confident that this project will serve as an important and enduring reminder that creating a more equitable world requires a vigilant look at both our history and ongoing efforts toward inclusion.'

In 1985, the Pride Foundation's visionary founders came together to create an organization focused on addressing the growing challenges facing the LGBTQ community, not the least of which was the new and frightening HIV/AIDS epidemic. Since then, the Pride Foundation has invested more than $70 million in grants, scholarships, and initiatives across the Northwest.

'As the largest city in the Pride Foundation's five-state region, Seattle was an epicenter of life and loss for our community,' explained Brandy Pirtle-Guiney, the Pride Foundation's board vice president and longtime resident of Portland, OR. 'Our investment in the AMP seeks to honor the substantial regional role that the city held during the epidemic and continues to hold today.'

In addition to using public art to create a physical place and technology to share the diverse regional responses to the crisis, 'the Pride Foundation's grant will further our work in collecting stories from all communities affected by the AIDS crisis,' said steering committee member Jeff Sakuma. 'Our goals during the story collection include ensuring that the narrative of HIV/AIDS is not just about its impact on gay, white, cisgender men but creating awareness of the disproportionate impact HIV continues to have on communities of color, transgender people, and cis women.'

This gift, in concert with funds from the City of Seattle, Lucky Seven Foundation, the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, the Seattle Parks Foundation Community Parks Fund, and individual donors, has helped AMP organizers reach 20% of the project's $2.9 million goal. Individuals and business owners interested in contributing to the memorial are encouraged to learn more about the project at www.TheAMP.org.

The memorial organizers anticipate dedicating the site, located in the plaza over Seattle's Capitol Hill Light Rail Station, in early 2020.

The AMP: AIDS Memorial Pathway, community-driven and -funded, will use public art to create a physical place for remembrance and reflection; utilize technology to share stories about the epidemic and the diverse community responses to the crisis; and provide a call to action to end HIV/AIDS, stigma, and discrimination. Learn more at www.TheAMP.org

The Pride Foundation is the only LGBTQ community foundation serving the Northwest region of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. It inspires giving to expand opportunities and advance full equality for LGBTQ people across the Northwest. For more information, visit www.PrideFoundation.org.
