The Wall Las Memorias Project

The Wall Las Memorias Project is a community health and wellness organization dedicated to serving Latino, LGBT and other underserved populations through advocacy, education and building the next generation of leadership.

TWLMP was founded in 1994 to address HIV/AIDS stigma in the Latino community through use of its Las Memorias AIDS Monument as a symbol and catalyst for change. Since then, TWLMP has evolved into a thriving force in the Latino and LGBTQ community, advocating for prevention and awareness of various health and wellness issues. TWLMP incorporates grassroots community organizing addressing social justice issues into free programs and services, and has been nationally recognized for its social justice advocacy on the local, state and national levels.

Inspired by personal loss to AIDS in the early 1990s, TWLMP was created with the vision of bringing HIV/AIDS awareness to the Latino community. The movement began when founder Richard Zaldivar was informed that his close friend was battling HIV. After observing the reaction and guilt in his friend, Zaldivar was determined to create an avenue of dialogue dedicated to educating both his community and the rest of the world about HIV/AIDS prevention and much more.
