Washington Post Previews "Unusual Mobilization" of Campaign to End AIDS

October 31, 2005

The Washington Post on Monday profiled the "unusual mobilization" of several groups of people who are traveling across the U.S. as part of the Campaign To End AIDS' effort to "refocus attention" on the HIV/AIDS epidemic (Levine, Washington Post, 10/31). C2EA earlier this month launched 10 caravans nationwide and plans to rally in 100 more cities. The caravans on Nov. 5 will converge on Washington, D.C., for "Four Days of Action to End AIDS," which will include lobbying on Capitol Hill, an interfaith prayer service and a March To End AIDS (Kaiser Daily HIV/AIDS Report, 10/25). C2EA organizers say the campaign was "borne of frustration over the country's 'stalled response' to AIDS and a widespread public assumption that, because of recent drugs that increase longevity, the virus is no longer a critical public health issue," according to the Post. Marsha Martin, head of the Washington, D.C., HIV/AIDS Administration, said, "This is to show that people care about the epidemic, that it's not over, that they have a voice" (Washington Post, 10/31).
