For his tireless activism, GLAD is honoring Phil Wilson at its 17th annual Spirit of Justice Awards Dinner. With remarks by GLAD’s Executive Director Janson Wu and AIDS Law Project Director Ben Klein, the evening recognized Wilson, founding president and CEO of the Black AIDS Institute. And since 1999 the institute he started continues to mobilize black leaders, institution and individuals to stop AIDS in the black community. The shindig, which also celebrated the vital work of GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders, raised nearly $700,000 for GLAD’s advocacy efforts for GLBTQ people and people with HIV.
