Fight the fear with the facts, 1986

In 1982, before the term AIDS existed, a group of four volunteers in Los Angeles set up an anonymous hotline to share what little information there was about preventing and recognizing the disease. What began with one phone and a single page of facts is now one of the largest AIDS service organizations in the country, offering support and information in more than a dozen languages to anyone seeking help.
