A coalition of African American groups in N.E. Portland has been working to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS in the African American community. Five bus-stop benches in Portland have been dedicated to the campaign – MY FRIEND WITH AIDS IS STILL MY FRIEND.  Pictured here is the installation of a bench at the intersection of Killingsworth Street and Michigan Ave. The coalition includes representatives from the Albina Ministerial Alliance, the African American Alliance, Brother to Brother, Cascade AIDS Project, The Portland Alumni Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, The Coalition of Black Men, The Links, Inc., Portland Urban League and Multnomah County Health Department.
