Danny Glover Writes a Letter to Congress (2000)

Actor Danny Glover is a longtime HIV/AIDS activist and a board member of the Black AIDS Institute. He is also a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations' UNICEF program.

He lent his voice to the HIV awareness movement when he wrote to Congress in 2000, applauding it and the UN for making a commitment to defining HIV/AIDS as a foreign policy and development issue on its agenda.
