Remembering Paul Yabor

Paul Yabor - HIV/AIDS Activist
Paul Yabor, Paul Cherashore, Dan Martino

It is with great sadness that we announce that Paul Yabor, an AIDS Activist and member of the FIGHT Community passed away today. Paul was known across the Philadelphia region as a tireless champion of the rights of people living with HIV/AIDS, and was involved in many related causes. He was a long-time member of ACT UP Philadelphia, and had become a member of the Pennsylvania State HIV Prevention Planning Board. He gave much of his energy to the work of Prevention Point Philadelphia, in addition to volunteering with Philly AIDS Thrift, the FIGHT Community Advisory Board, and countless other organizations. He was an early member of the Campaign to Take Back Vacant Land, which led to the successful development of the Philadelphia Land Bank. His most recent activist goals were fighting for opiate overdose prevention methods, and for the establishment of safer consumption sites for active drug users. Paul was a formidable activist and his voice will surely be missed.

Paul was featured in a number of articles about the challenges of living with hep C, including this WHYY piece.

Rest in Power, Paul. Your work will live on.
