April 30: Help Write AIDS 2012 Plenary Speech on HIV in the United States

On Monday, April 30, we want your input!

Join us for a National Town Hall phone call and help shape the Phill Wilson AIDS 2012 Plenary Address: The U.S. Epidemic.

In January the International AIDS Society announced that Black AIDS Institute CEO Phill Wilson had been selected to give a plenary address at AIDS 2012 on the US epidemic. As the US hosts the conference for the first time in 22 years, this plenary will play an important role in shaping the domestic HIV/AIDS message for the conference.

Phill and the Black AIDS Institute see this as a great honor and a great responsibility. With more than one million Americans living with HIV or AIDS, and one of the most complex and enduring epidemics in the world, there is a lot that can and should be said.

This is where you come in ...

The Black AIDS Institute, in partnership with the National Minority AIDS Council and the HIV Prevention Justice Alliance, invite you to participate in a national conference call to voice your priorities and concerns for this plenary address, on April 30th, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern. Phill Wilson will be on the line to hear directly from you.

Join us on Monday, April 30, 2:00-3:00 p.m. EST
