AbstractAIDS Coalition to Unleash Power/KC (ACT-UP/KC) was founded in September 1988 with the purpose of promoting AIDS awareness, treatments, and victim's rights through aggressive activism. ACT-UP/KC held numerous demonstrations and boycotts of local businesses and often worked with other gay and lesbian organizations. The group disbanded in 1994 due to dwindling membership. This collection consists of organizational records and correspondence, newsletters, bylaws, financial reports, hand-written notes, flyers, newspaper articles, audio-visual materials, and other organizational records.
