We Understand Message Board

Inspired by Jim St. James, one of the founders of PWA, cards that said “We Understand” were attached with a black ribbon to a long-stemmed scarlet rose dipped in black except for the petals.

In the week leading up to World AIDS Day, we invite you to take a moment to share your message of understanding on the We Understand Message Board
