BCAP Stands In Solidarity with Black Lives.
Due to the widespread, visceral, and continued racism in our country, Boulder County AIDS Project (BCAP) is announcing our outright opposition towards all forms of white supremacy and that we stand in solidarity with every Black person in this country. Equally, we must honor the lives of David McAtee, George Floyd, Tony McDade, Dreasjon “Sean” Reed, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the countless other Black individuals whose time on this earth, pursuing their passions and dreams, was cut far too short by racial violence.
At the heart of BCAP’s mission of serving people living with or at risk of acquiring HIV is a commitment to health equity, social justice, and human rights. We denounce all acts of racism and white supremacy, whether violent or subversive, regardless of the intention. The pain inflicted on Black individuals and communities by anti-Black racism is far too abhorrent for BCAP not to be steadfast and rigid in our anti-racist principles.
We are heartbroken and outraged by the institutionalized racism and anti-Black violence within the policing and criminal justice systems. BCAP supports the protests in Colorado and across our nation that demand justice, safety, access, equity, and civil rights for Black people. At BCAP, we remain committed to education and growth in the critical areas of anti-racism, anti-oppression, anti-stigma, inclusion, equity, and trauma-informed care to improve ourselves, our workplace, and our services.
We believe it is everyone’s duty, especially that of White people, to continue to fight anti-blackness, racism, and oppression in its many forms. We agree with Archbishop Desmond Tutu when he said, “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.” BCAP must speak out. You must speak out. We all must speak out and act against anti-Black and racist ideologies, while supporting, electing, and funding leadership that will ensure a future where Black children and adults have just as much opportunity, joy, and love as any human being ought to have.

Until there is a cure, BCAP works to improve the lives of people living with HIV, minimize HIV transmission, and bring an end to HIV-related stigma in our community.
WHAT WE DO
Testing, treatment and ending stigma are the pathways to a world without AIDS. Every day, we test individuals at risk for HIV, making sure those who test positive get access to the care, information and support they need.
Our services include medical and bilingual case management, insurance assistance, financial support, pro bono professional services such as legal aid, and nutritional support through an on-site food pantry.
We also offer innovative prevention and outreach programs to our region's most at-risk populations, to reduce the spread of HIV.
