About the Event

CHHS is is excited to announce this opportunity to walk Capitol Hill's AIDS Memorial Pathway with former City Council member Tom Rasmussen. For decades, Seattle's LGBTQ+ history has been inextricably linked with the history of Capitol Hill. Starting in 2015, Rasmussen was one of a passionate group of volunteers and community leaders who came together to create The AMP, or AIDS Memorial Pathway, which was completed in 2021 and now serves as a highlight of the neighborhood. The project has three goals: to use public art to create a physical place for reflection and remembrance, to share stories of the epidemic and the diverse community responses to the AIDS crisis, and to provide a call to action to end HIV/AIDS stigma and discrimination. Today, this beautiful series of art works weaves its way through our every day neighborhood spots, from the farmer's market to Cal Anderson Park. Here is a chance to explore the people and history behind the art and learn how it all fits together.

We will meet at the Station House Cathy Hillenbrand Community Room, which does not have an official address, but is at 10th Ave E and John Street. Once gathered, we will hear from Tom Rassmuseen and then walk the pathway to learn about the stops along the way. The tour will run rain or shine, so come prepared for both scenarios. The walk will be slow and fairly flat, with some slight inclines,  but attendees should be prepared to be on their feet for roughly an hour and a half.
