Established in 1987, The NAMES Project Foundation preserves, cares for, and uses the AIDS Memorial Quilt to foster healing, heighten awareness, and inspire action in the struggle against HIV and AIDS. The AIDS Memorial Quilt is a poignant memorial, a powerful tool for use in preventing new HIV infections, and it’s the largest ongoing community arts project in the world. Each of the more than 44,000 colorful panels that make up the Quilt memorializes the life of a person lost to AIDS. The AIDS Memorial Quilt provides a creative means for remembrance and healing, effectively illustrates the enormity of the AIDS epidemic, increases the general public’s awareness of HIV and AIDS, assists others with HIV infection-prevention education, and raises funds for community-based AIDS service organizations.
