About ACT UP

ACT UP is the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power.

We are a diverse, non-partisan group of individuals united in anger and committed to direct action to end the HIV/AIDS crisis.

The first ACT UP chapter was founded in New York in 1987. Since then dozens of chapters have been formed in countries around the world. You can learn more about the history and activities of ACT UP New York here and here.

This chapter of ACT UP Dublin was founded in July of 2016 in response to the steady growth in new HIV diagnoses in Ireland, and the persistent and pernicious silence and stigma that continue to surround HIV.

You can find us on Twitter or Facebook.
