Press Release

AIDS Watch at Home 2010: Make Congress Listen Right in Your Own Backyard

May 6, 2010

Hundreds of AIDS advocates recently gathered in Washington, D.C. as part of AIDS Watch 2010 to tell members of Congress about the urgent need to expand comprehensive and compassionate HIV/AIDS prevention and care services, following through on health care reform implementation, and delivering on promises for a National HIV/AIDS Strategy.

Now it's YOUR turn. Over the next few weeks, hundreds more AIDS advocates across the country will meet with their members of congress right in their home state as part of AIDS Watch at Home 2010.

Delivering these important messages once won't do the job. Our members of Congress need to hear it over and over again.

Here's How You Can Help:

Sign up for one of three webinars in May that will tell you everything you need to know about setting up a meeting with your member of Congress, telling your story and delivering policy asks.
