September 17, 2012

Have you heard about the new, critically acclaimed documentary How to Survive a Plague?

This powerful film tells the story of the brave young heroes of ACT UP New York and Treatment Action Group (TAG) as they fought for their lives at the dawn of the AIDS epidemic. We think everyone should go see it.

Whether you were there when it happened or are just hearing the story for the first time, the release of this mainstream documentary film provides all of us with a historic opportunity to bring THOUSANDS of new activists into our movement and to share our important stories of our own experiences with AIDS activism.

Pretty cool, right?

Here's how you can help:

RIGHT NOW: Tell your friends in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago to go out and see the film this week. Find showtimes here.

OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS: Find upcoming screenings in your area using this website and host a meet-up to discuss the film and build the movement.

IN A FEW MONTHS: After the mainstream release, the film will become available for limited community use. Contact us if you are interested in learning more!
