AIDS Walk 2022
For the ninth year, TMY partners with the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation (SAAF) to hold the AIDSWALK on the morning of Sunday, Oct. 9. The organizations share festival infrastructure, including stages, equipment, and porta-potties to create savings for both organizations. Throughout the festival, SAAF shares information about its organization, offering services for people infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS and providing information and skill-building programs to help others prevent further infection. On Sunday morning, as the walk ends, SAAF shares the ritual unfolding of quilt panels from the NAMES PROJECT (the largest folklore project in the world), made to honor local people lost to the virus.
