ACT UP receives Dr. Alan Berkman Award

ACT UP received the Dr. Alan Berkman Global Health Justice Award from Health GAP on Saturday, October 23rd. Dr. Berkman was a radical physician and activist who spent his whole life advancing justice for people around the world.

The award was presented to us by Rachel Maddow, TV show host extraordinaire and former ACT UP Philly "gadfly" (her words!).
