The Wall Las Memorias' 25th Anniversary Gala

"Twenty-five years ago, I dreamed of building a monument to those we lost to AIDS. That dream became a reality and launched a movement for social change. Today, the dream and movement live on. We invite you to join us in celebrating our history, embracing our future.” –Richard L. Zaldivar, Founder & Executive Director
