2010-2011 Award of the Year for Community Organization from ADAP Advocacy Association (aaa+)
Join the cause to save AIDS DRUG ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (ADAP) in your state.
June 5, 2011, marked the thirty-year anniversary of the HIV/AIDS crisis in the United States.
Reduce the stigma attached to this physical disease. This was wrongly characterized as a disease that happened only to men who had sexual intercourse with other men. There is nothing further from the truth. It can happen to anyone who uses unprotected sex or uses needles to inject drugs that others have used.
Normalize good behavior for your children and your friends. Get tested frequently and encourage your friends to do the same. Talk to your children about their sexual concerns and teach them how to protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Contact your congress person and senator, your state congress person and senator and tell them that you want to save and restore funding to ADAP and Ryan White programs.
These programs assist people without insurance to obtain life-saving medications. Make sure everyone has the medication he or she needs to fight this disease.
