A Survivor's Journey for Justice: Eric Sawyer, AIDS Activist

As a young man growing up in the United States, Sawyer never thought he would become a global activist - until the AIDS crisis hit his community so hard it was time to fight back. After losing his life partner to AIDS, Sawyer joined thousands of others in the United States to protest the lack of government response to the deadly disease. Marching through the streets, joining forces across society and demanding justice, these activists helped to turn the tide and transform AIDS from a death sentence into a manageable chronic condition. Not satisfied with seeing results only in wealthy countries, Sawyer stood strong for AIDS medicines to be distributed worldwide, especially to the poorest regions. Impressed by his energy and commitment, the United Nations Joint Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) recruited Eric to its team in the service of ending the epidemic. This film follows his life, which parallels the inception, spread and containment of HIV, and offers a hopeful look at how one individual, facing a health threat to his own life, can save those of countless others.
