CASE MANAGEMENT TEAM INDUCTS NEW PANEL TO AIDS MEMORIAL QUILT On World AIDS Day, Compassâ€™ Case Management team will induct a new panel to the AIDS Memorial Quilt to honor and commemorate community members who have died in the last year. The Case Management team formed a committee of staff and community members who have been working on the handmade quilt panel since October. The induction ceremony will take place on December 1st at Compass Community Center during the World AIDS Day, A Day With(Out) Art ceremony, 6:30-8:00pm. Established in 1987, The AIDS Memorial Quilt is composed of more than 48,000 individual 3 x 6 foot panels, each one commemorating the life of someone who has died of AIDS. These panels come from every state in the nation, every corner of the globe and they have been sewn by hundreds of thousands of friends, lovers and family members into this epic memorial, the largest piece of ongoing community art in the world. By revealing the humanity behind the statistics, the AIDS Memorial Quilt helps teach compassion, triumphs over taboo, stigma and phobia; and inspires individuals to take direct responsibility for their own well-being and that of their family, friends and community.
