In 1995, after living with HIV since the 80’s, Michael Buck knew all too well, the stigma, ignorance and isolation that makes his community extraordinarily vulnerable to the spread of infectious disease. Michael began a mission to counter those conditions with a message of acceptance, education and love. He has been unique in his mission of challenging the Black Church to preach the Gospel of Love when it comes to HIV/AIDS. He has expanded that mission through a series of in-service presentations in churches, Community Leader Breakfasts, Spoken Word Events, Informational Luncheons Series, and the Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
