Mary Fisher, Mothers Gather for AIDS Dialogue During GOP Convention
PWAs, AIDS advocates call for AIDS leadership
August 13, 1996
SAN DIEGO - Republican National Convention speaker Mary Fisher, the HIV-positive mother of two who brought many 1992 GOP national convention-goers to tears, will join other mothers from across the country for a touching "Mothers' Dialogue on AIDS." The dialogue event, which is sponsored by Mothers' Voices, is scheduled for 10:15 a.m. (PST), Tuesday, August 13, at the Voices '96 Media Center, 327 4th Street (directly across the street from the San Diego Convention Center). Christine Lubinski, AIDS Action Council's deputy executive director, will be a featured speaker.
"It is estimated that daily one in four teenagers become infected with HIV. We're losing more and more precious lives to this insidious, yet preventable, disease," said Christine Lubinski, AIDS Action Council's deputy executive director and a featured speaker at the "Mothers Dialogue on AIDS" event. "As a mother and an advocate for people living with HIV and AIDS, I am lending my voice to a dialogue that comes from the heart and is aimed at sending a message to the presidential candidates in Campaign '96: You must be leaders in the fight against AIDS."
Mothers' Voices is a national group of mothers who have lost sons and daughters to AIDS.
