AHF Honors and Remembers Senator Dianne Feinstein
The Californer/10255944

~ On February 10, 1996, United States Senator Dianne Feinstein cut the ribbon at the opening of Linn House, one of three AIDS hospices built and operated by AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF). To her immediate left was Zev Yaroslavsky, then Los Angeles County Supervisor (District 3), and on her right was Michael Weinstein, AHF cofounder and president.

Today, AHF mourns the death of Senator Feinstein, an early champion in the human rights movement. Feinstein passed away at the age of 90 in San Francisco.

"Dianne Feinstein was a stalwart supporter of AIDS funding in the US and across the world," said Michael Weinstein. "AHF had the honor of hosting her at our hospices at the height of the death and dying in the late eighties. In 1996, she said at the opening of Linn House that she hoped that hospice would be the last, and indeed it was. She will always be remembered as one of the elected officials who answered the call magnificently."
