ACT UP is an international direct action advocacy group focused primarily on improving the access to and quality of AIDS healthcare
services, as well as coalition building with a broad range of other activist communities. This collection contains ephemera
and promotional materials from ACT UP Los Angeles.
Meeting for the first time in West Hollywood in 1987, the Los Angeles chapter of ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power)
was inspired by the activities of ACT UP New York which had been active throughout that year.
