Wolfe was a professor of psychology at CUNY and had extensive experience in leftist organizing going back to the sixties. So she was a mentor to many members who were new to activism. “For a lot of the people who came into ACT UP in the beginning, putting a sticker on the wall was a big anti-authority thing. And after a while, those stickers were everywhere. That was like the first step of saying, ‘We’re not going to just sit back.’ And once you put a sticker on the wall, you can do almost anything. Once you step over that line, you can just take the next step.”
