 Takeshi Moro, Assistant Professor of Art & Art History, Sally Lehrman, Knight Ridder/San Jose Mercury News Professor in Journalism and the Public Interest, and Gabriela Mena '13, Public Health Science and Biology, invite you to witness the joys and struggles of people living with HIV or AIDS in a collaborative photo exhibition created by Santa Clara University students.

Nearly one in five people living with HIV or AIDS in Santa Clara County doesn't know his or her status. Another third do know, but do not get the care they need.

We all have the power to change this situation. Join us in a celebration of vitality and pride.
