These records consist of reports, correspondence, drug protocols, newspaper clippings, posters, and audiovisual materials
that document the work of the ACT UP/Golden Gate Breast Cancer committee.
By the 1990s the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP) had successfully campaigned to obtain access to drug trials for
AIDS and HIV patients. In the mid-1990s, they formed a breast cancer committee which for 3 years taught advocates how to do
ACT UP-style activism on behalf of breast cancer patients.
