Let’s Kick ASS (AIDS Survivor Syndrome) Palm Springs

Social Connection, HIV & Aging Education and Advocacy

People feel better when engaged in social activity. LKA Palm Springs helps long-term survivors overcome isolation by creating social opportunity. From our popular monthly potlucks, thrice-monthly coffee socials, and our movie nights, to now establishing annual events such as our June 5, Long-term Survivors Day reception and our Thanksgiving Day feast, LKAPS benefits its members through engagement.

The 2021 theme is “AIDS at 40: Envisioning a Future We Never Imagined”. The 2021 hashtag is #HLTSAD and #AIDSat40.
