Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS
What we do together, makes a difference
Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS has fostered and offered a physical home to an extraordinary collection of initiatives within the theater community. These organizations have united the Broadway community making it a collective and powerful engine for social change and doing good.
From empowering students and fighting for equality and diversity to bringing the power of the arts to underserved children and families, these programs work to make a difference every day. By supporting these service programs, Broadway Cares is able to more deeply connect new audiences to the important work of helping those affected by HIV/AIDS or facing other debilitating illnesses and life crises.
