Heroes of HIV Luncheon

December 3, 2018

Cascade AIDS Project (CAP) is a local non-profit that supports, empowers, and advocates on behalf of people living with HIV/AIDS. Today, Nick was honored to accept the Community Hero Award on behalf of the City of Portland at CAP’s annual Heroes of HIV Luncheon.

The luncheon celebrates the people and organizations supporting people living with HIV/AIDS and fighting to end the stigma around the disease.

In 2016, the City invested in the PRISM Health Center, Oregon’s first specialized healthcare facility for the LGBTQ+ community.

Special congratulations to other honorees Kathleen Saadat and Edward Reeves.
