Care Package for June 22, 2019

Care Packages through the end of June are a celebration of LGBTQ Pride Month. I know it’s not much, but I want to put as much support as I could into the world, and this seemed like a good way to add a bit more. Happy Pride Month.

In 1989, the New York Stock Exchange was the site of two protests held by ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) to call for a lower price for AZT, an AIDS treatment unavailable to a majority of those infected with HIV due to its high price.
