AIDS Activism From USCA to Obama Campaign Headquarters
November 23, 2011
On Friday, November 11, AIDS activists from the Chicago AIDS Caucus and from Houston, New York, and Atlanta gathered at USCA to march to the Obama Campaign headquarters. Approximately 50 people took part. The march was organized by the Chicago Women's AIDS Project (CWAP), Gender Just, and Health GAP to call attention to decreased access to HIV medications nationally and globally. The group delivered a superman cape to Obama's office, calling on him to step up and be the hero who takes action to end AIDS.
According to Cathy Christeller of CWAP, "We have the means to make treatment universally available, but it will never happen if local and global activists don't demand it."
