June 6: Live! AIDS 2012 Community Reps Take Your Qs, Suggestions!
May 20, 2011
Join us for the LiveBlogged launch of Countdown AIDS 2012, an open, public project for sharing information and mobilizing around the 19th International AIDS Conference:
When: Monday, June 6 at 1 pm Eastern
What: A LiveBlog: Just come on back to www.preventionjustice.org on that day and time, and you'll be able to type in and read questions and comments! (The conversation will also be available immediately afterwards, and on an ongoing basis.)
Why and Who:
AIDS 2012 is over a year from now, but plans are underway for this massive event that will gather over 25,000 in Washington DC next July.
What will happen there? How can people living with HIV and other activists use this conference to further HIV prevention justice and our policy priorities? How can the planning be as transparent and accountable as possible?
We'll give you the opportunity to ask these and more questions of the five U.S.-based community representatives to AIDS 2012:
In mid-May, they participated in the first full meeting of the AIDS 2012 Joint Programme Committee (comprised of members of 3 subcommittees: Community Programme, Leadership and Accountability, and Scientific Programme) and the 3rd meeting of the 2012 Conference Coordinating Committee.
What does that all mean? Who runs this thing, anyway? What can be done to make it an advocacy success? And what are the implications of it happening in the U.S. just months before a Presidential election?
The discussion will be facilitated by Julie Davids of the HIV Prevention Justice Alliance.
Countdown AIDS 2012 is an open, public project for
sharing information and mobilizing around the 19th International AIDS
Conference, known as AIDS 2012.
