Ande Stone, left, senior community mobilization manager at the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, presented the Catalyst of Change Award to outgoing AIDS Legal Referral Panel Executive Director Bill Hirsh August 21 at the foundation's Strut health clinic in the LGBTQ Castro neighborhood. The award was given by SFAF's HIV Advocacy Network, which mobilizes the HIV community to advocate for public policies to address their needs. Hirsh stated in a news release that he was "thrilled" to receive the award. "I believe the recognition stems from the work I have done to ensure that the city's budget reflects the needs of some of the most vulnerable residents of our community and my efforts over many years to address the affordable housing crisis experienced by people living with HIV," he added. Hirsh will be stepping down from leading ALRP at the end of the year.
