Make the AIDS Vote Count! November 2nd Elections -- 22 Days and Counting ..."

October 11, 2010

This article was provided by the U.S. Positive Women's Network.

Positive Women's Network November 2nd is ELECTION DAY!

Why is this election important? 2010 was a historic year for communities affected by HIV. We saw passage of health care reform and the announcement of the first ever U.S. National HIV/AIDS Strategy- two significant steps forward in our efforts to increase access to prevention and health care and reduce health disparities, especially for people affected by HIV. But we also know that communities with low voting rates -- including people of color and low-income communities -- are disproportionately affected by HIV. To expand political will to effectively and compassionately address the domestic HIV epidemic, participating in the mid-term 2010 elections and learning your candidate's stance on issues important to you is vital.

Stay tuned!: Our next e-blast will include questions you can ask your candidates about where they stand on issues important to women living with HIV.
