National Call-In Day to Support Funding for ADAP - April 5th
« on: April 04, 2011, 10:22:24 PM »
National Call-In Day to Support Funding for Domestic HIV/AIDS Programs!
Call Your Congressional Leaders on Tuesday, April 5th

http://capwiz.com/aac/issues/alert/?alertid=39323501

BACKGROUND INFO:
Congress has not yet passed a final Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 funding bill. Short-term Fiscal Year 2011 funding for government programs runs out at midnight on April 8th, and domestic programs that support health care and other services for people with HIV/AIDS are at risk for cuts. Congress also wants to use policy riders to limit the use of federal funding for important HIV-related programs, such as syringe exchange and public health programs that provide HIV and STD testing and other related medical services; and defund health care reform implementation. Congressional leadership is negotiating a final FY 11 funding bill now and may vote on it sometime over the next few days.


ACTION NEEDED:
Please call the following Congressional Leadership and ask them to support full funding for domestic HIV/AIDS programs and no policy riders.  Please help make these critical calls!

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), 202-224-3542
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), 202-225-0600
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), 202-224-3135


MESSAGE:
I am calling to ask the Senator/Speaker to support full funding for domestic HIV/AIDS programs and no policy riders in the final FY11 funding bill!

Amidst rising infection rates and shrinking state and local budgets, full federal funding for HIV/AIDS programs is more vital than ever.  Over 1.1 million people currently are living with HIV and there are an estimated 56,000 new infections annually.  Early and reliable access to HIV care and treatment help people with HIV live healthy and productive lives and is cost effective.  Investing in HIV prevention today translates into greater health and less spending in the future.

In my state/district, HIV programs are greatly needed, because (insert local details or tell personal story.)


If you have questions about AIDS United or this campaign, please contact Jimmy Schneidewind at jschneidewind@aidsunited.org.  More info available at AIDS United http://www.aidsunited.org/

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP IN THIS IMPORTANT MATTER

I called AND emailed my federal legislators today.

I already spoke face-2-face with my state legislators two days in a row last week. I even gave them cookies to entice them into fully funding ADAP at the state level :D

Leather, the problem is that you are not giving them Lemon Bars. Lemon BArs= full funding.
