ACT UP/LA is the acronym for AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power/Los Angeles. Part of an international and nationwide movement, ACT UP/LA is a grass-roots, democratic, militant, direct action organization dedicated to creating positive changes around HIV/AIDS in federal and local government, the media and the medical and pharmaceutical industries through non-violent public protests.
