WHAT: Now more than 50 miles long were it to be laid out end-to-end, The AIDS Memorial Quilt is too large to display in any one location.

Come experience The Last One, an award-winning and powerful film, as it traces the AIDS Quilt's history and continued increase in size. This film examines the stigma, discrimination, social status and the lack of access associated with AIDS, a disease that has already claimed the lives of nearly 40 million people and currently infects another 34 million men, women and children around the globe, including 50,000 new infections a year in the U.S. alone.
