Political Action Forum is Saturday
C2EA bills itself as "people living with HIV/AIDS and individuals, coalitions and organizations, all united in action to demand a ... response by our government to end the pandemic and to help people living with HIV/AIDS."
The Campaign's focus is "local, statewide, national and global. We ... demand that our government use its massive resources and our best science to educate about and prevent HIV infection, to eliminate stigma and discrimination against HIV-positive people, to ensure comprehensive care, treatment and housing are available for those living with HIV/AIDS and to find a cure to end AIDS."
C2EA will join with the well-regarded National Association of People With AIDS in NAPWA's quasi-annual events. First, AIDS Watch will mount three days of training and congressional lobbying, May 2-5, followed by state organizing over the summer. Then, a massive march and advocacy rally will be held in Washington, D.C., Oct. 8-12.
All those interested in HIV/AIDS especially HIV-positive people, their allies and service providers are encouraged to attend Saturday's free lunch forum. ASA is located at 7215 Cameron Rd., just north of St. Johns.
