In downtown San Francisco, Chris Arnold '92 wakes up to the radio. He rolls over and looks at the clock: 6:40 a.m.

He knows the voice coming from the radio, even though his mind is thick with sleep. It's repeating words he's heard a hundred times over the past week, about Stephen Bright, a big-shot Washington lawyer who gave up his practice to revive the Southern Center for Human Rights.

The voice cuts to Bright talking about an HIV-positive man who was arrested for shoplifting, put in a cell with tubercular cellmates, denied his AIDS medication, then, months later, kicked out onto the street at midnight. Eighty pounds lighter, unable to walk, he died soon thereafter.
