ACT UP and several co-sponsors have called for a peaceful protest at the White House on November 26, less than a week before World AIDS Day, to demand Federal action against AIDS in the U.S. and worldwide. Demonstrators will meet at noon at McPherson Square, 15th and Eye Streets NW, and march to the White House a few blocks away. Organizers want the Administration to act on the "Saving Families and Communities" initiative recently endorsed by nearly 300 organizations around the world.

The sponsoring organizations are ACT UP New York, ACT UP Philadelphia, Health Gap, African Services Committee, Housing Works, and NYC AIDS Housing Network. Free buses will be available from several New York locations and from downtown Philadelphia.

For more information visit www.healthgap.org/WAD.html or email Paul Davis in Philadelphia, pdavis@healthgap.org, or Sharonann Lynch in New York, salynch@healthgap.org.
