After Protest,
GMHC Agrees to Friday Night Dinners

Members of the Consumer Advisory Board of the Gay Men's Health Crisis, and other activists, held a successful demonstration yesterday at the agency's headquarters in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood.

They were protesting GMHC's plans to move to the far West Side, the relative inaccessibility of the new location and management of the agency.

The president of the GMHC CAB, Marcelo Maia, shared this photograph of activists walking a picket line at the org's entrance. To the left of the Tisch Building inscription, the GMHC is faintly visible.

Marcelo also sent along this image of a flyer, announcing some positive developments to come out of the protest:

Thank you, Marcelo, and all of the people with AIDS and activists, fighting the good fight to persuade GMHC leaders to keep the special needs of clients first and foremost on the service org's agenda.
