We are pleased to be a part of the documentary video, L(HIV)ING LOUD, that was created by journalism student Alessio Cavalca in an effort to share the story of Jesus Heberto Guillen Solis, to highlight some of the challenges facing long term HIV survivors, and also to bring hope to those newly diagnosed with HIV. Jesus is a long-time friend of ALRP. ALRP Executive Director Bill Hirsh was pleased to be featured in the film, which draws attention to some of the critical legal services ALRP makes available to the HIV community. Thank you, Jesus and Alessio, for allowing ALRP to be a part of this beautiful project.
For Volunteer Appreciation week, we want to share how grateful we are to our wonderful volunteers. Whether a volunteer in our office, at our events, or on our Panel, you make a difference in the lives of those living with HIV/AIDS. Thank you.
ALRP Executive Director Bill Hirsh appeared on a panel for UCSF Public Psychiatry Fellows organized by Jim Dilley, Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at UCSF and Co-Director of UCSF Alliance Health Project. The fellows are engaged in serving vulnerable populations in San Francisco and exploring how organizational structure builds leadership in the community. Bill discussed his work serving people living with disabilities and shared some of the successes and challenges of leading a nonprofit organization for over twenty years.
