Lambda Legal Gathers Over 130 HIV Advocacy Organizations to Support Affordable Care Act

U.S. Supreme Court Will Hear Oral Argument at the End of March

March 15, 2012

Chicago, Ill. -- Lambda Legal released a list of 130 HIV and health care advocacy and direct service organizations who have endorsed Lambda Legal's friend-of-the-court brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold the Affordable Care Act. The United States Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in several cases challenging the constitutionality of the law the week of March 26, 2012.

"The list of supporters for our brief urging the Court to uphold the ACA continues to grow because of the law's enormous potential to impact the domestic AIDS epidemic," said Scott Schoettes, HIV Project Director for Lambda Legal. "By signing on to the statement of support, organizations across the nation have affirmed the demonstrable effect the ACA will have on reducing rates of transmission and increasing prevention education, early detection, and access to quality care for everyone living with HIV."
