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. Having taken up many causes, including the humanitarian crisis in Darfur and supporting unions and farm workers, HIV/AIDS is a true passion of his -- his brother was diagnosed with AIDS. 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.
