Atlanta Pride Committee says
Did you know that The NAMES Project Foundation- caretaker of the AAIDS Memorial Quilt- is headquartered here in Atlanta and has been since 2001?

Nearly 30 years ago a group of strangers gathered to remember the names and lives of their loved ones they feared history would forget- and with that seemingly simple act of love and defiance, the first panels of The AIDS Memorial Quilt (The Quilt) were created and The NAMES Project founded.

In the years sine that first display, The Quilt has grown from 40 panels to 49,000 and the names remembered in its stitches from 2,000 to 96,000.

On Saturday October 8th, Atlanta Pride will host a Quilt display in Piedmont Park honoring those loved ones whose names we will never forget.
