Title

SILENCIO = MUERTE [SILENCE = DEATH]

Description

The AIDS Coalition To Unleash Power (ACT UP), an international HIV/AIDS advocacy group, was formed in New York City in 1987 at the urging of activist Larry Kramer. The organization advocated direct political action and staged a series of high-profile confrontations at symbols of patriarchal authority, including the New York Stock Exchange and St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York, and federal offices around the country including the office of the Food and Drug Administration in Washington, D.C. The Boston chapter of ACT-UP formed in 1988. This button shows the Spanish-language translation, "Silencio = Muerto," of ACT-UP's slogan "Silence = Death."
