About 100 people participated in a protest outside City Hall June 30 to draw attention to the city’s HIV/AIDS housing crisis. During the demonstration, organized by ACT UP, protesters called on Mayor Nutter to direct city funds to housing initiatives for those with HIV/AIDS and work to eliminate the growing waiting list for HIV/AIDS housing. In a report released this week by ACT UP, the group found that the city’s current wait list for housing funded by the Housing Opportunities for People With AIDS stands at more than 200, a 30-percent jump in the last six months. About a dozen activists were invited into City Hall during the protest to discuss their concerns with Doug Oliver, the mayor’s press secretary. Photo: Scott Drake
