Does the AIDS movement still need ACT UP...??
HELL YEA IT DOES!! To learn why, take a sneak peek below of our abstract poster that will be presented at the International AIDS Conference (IAC) in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, July 24th. The poster tells the history of ACT UP Philly: how we have survived and thrived, how we are still kicking ass to change the world, and serves as a potent reminder that we are still united in anger and committed to direct action until the end of the AIDS crisis.
Don't miss out, get on the bus to D.C.
The poster is not the only presence that ACT UP Philly will have at the IAC. As fabulous as the poster is, by far the most exciting thing ACT UP Philly will be doing is helping organize the We Can End AIDS march on July 24th (the same day as our poster presentation). This will be a historic march for AIDS activism and you don't want to miss it! ACT UP Philly is bringing ten buses (yes, 10!) of people down to D.C. to participate in this historic march. The trip is free and will include a visit to the Global Village at the IAC.
All you have to do is sign up to save a seat on the bus. So what are you waiting for? Go here to sign up to save a seat on one of the buses from Philly (if link does not work, cut and paste the following address: http://bit.ly/actup2dc), or you can call 215-981-3309.
