PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING MY WORK


New York, NY – ACT UP New York took to the streets in outrage to draw attention to World AIDS Day, an international recognition of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. In alliance with fellow direct action groups, Rise and Resist, and Voices4, ACT UP NY is staged a die—in and speak out on November 29, 2017 in Times Square to emphasize: people with HIV and AIDS are still here. We are here, and we are fighting for the end of the AIDS epidemic in New York, the US, and around the world.

We know that HIV is exacerbated by:

– High cost of prescription medicines
– HIV criminalization laws
– Lack of political will from elected officials

Since ACT UP NY’s 30th anniversary action in March, we have been campaigning to raise the age to create more housing for LGBT youth, ages 21-24, implementing a crystal meth support policy, and now fighting against HIV criminalization.

We will be joined by three speakers, including George M. Johnson (HIV activist), Maddison O’Neil (ACT UP NY and Voices4), and Emily Sanderson (ACT UP NY and Health GAP (Global Access Project).
