Press Release

Make Sure Candy Crowley Asks the Presidential Candidates Questions About HIV!

October 15, 2012

Dear AU Advocate:

Two debates down -- one presidential and one vice presidential -- and HIV has STILL not been addressed!

We have another chance for tomorrow night's debate! So let's turn up the head on moderator Candy Crowley of CNN on Twitter NOW to get her to ask President Obama and Governor Romney to #DebateHIV -- and find out what their administrations would do to end HIV in the U.S.

Via Twitter:

Use any of these sample tweets in your Twitter feed that contain questions for Martha Raddatz to ask the candidates:

@crowleyCNN 50% of HIV+ people rely on Medicaid for treatment; continued care reduces new infections. How will you protect them? #DebateHIV

@crowleyCNN How will you create & employ all tools necessary to end HIV & ensure healthy lives for those living with HIV/AIDS? #DebateHIV

@crowleyCNN How will you reduce health disparities like HIV from disproportionally impacting gay men, women of color & the poor? #DebateHIV

You can also create your own tweet with a personal story, photo, or another compelling statistic. Be sure to send @crowleyCNN and include #DebateHIV. Then encourage your friends, colleagues, and family to do the same!

The debate is TOMORROW so do this NOW!!!!

Be sure to stay tuned to AIDS United's Facebook page and Twitter feed for the latest information on how you can make HIV a priority issue in this presidential election.
