100 Days to Fight HIV/AIDS

Yesterday I attended the National Coalition to Support Sexuality Education’s bi-annual meeting in New York City. At the meeting, I learned that there will be a rally in Lafayette Park (Washington, D.C.) tomorrow at 12:30 pm. The goal of the rally is to urge the next president to make HIV/AIDS a national priority within the first 100 days. As we all know, marginalized communities – including low-income, People of Color (POC) and LGBT communities – are hardest hit by the epidemic. After 27 years of ideology-driven prevention policy, community organizations are now urging the new president to move in a new direction and launch a comprehensive national AIDS strategy that includes:

· Treatment and care for all people in the US living with HIV/AIDS

· Housing for all people living with HIV/AIDS

· Advance HIV prevention justice

· Reform the US Global HIV/AIDS Plan

Despite the chilly weather, I encourage everyone who can to visit Lafayette Park tomorrow and join other community members and organizations including the African Services Committee, the American Medical Student Association, the Community HIV/AIDS Mobilization Project and Advocates for Youth amongst many others to call for the next president to make HIV/AIDS a top priority.

If you have any questions about the event, please don’t hesitate to ask me or visit www.100daystofightaids.org.

hey hey! This rally was a rousing success, with more than a 1,000 activists and chants of "Hope! Hope! Hope! Hope!" A member of the transition team even came out to meet with our contingent and thanked everyone for coming out over an electronic megaphone. It was cold, but we were fierce and, for the first time in years, hopeful.
