International AIDS Conference 2012

Next week in Washington, DC will be the International Aids Conference, July 22-27. Throughout the week there will be events sharing information regarding new scientific research, committees on sharing harm reduction. The WE CAN END AIDS campaign will be doing a march on July 24th. If you didn't know I was recently a part of a lead up action sponsored by Housing Works.

We hoisted a banner on public space in front of the capitol building,

The protest went for sometime before any authorities made any indication of physical action. I feel that this action was a good start to get out in-front of the conference and get people to pay attention to some of the issues that need to be addressed in relation to HIV/AIDS and civil rights. A list of demands are being put forth by WE CAN END AIDS,

So remember if your in the DMV area, come to the March.
