Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) introduced H.R. 1843, the Repeal Existing Policies that Encourage and Allow Legal (REPEAL) HIV Discrimination Act on May 7, 2013

There is a great news - The US Conference of Mayors just recently passed a resolution supporting decriminalization efforts, and endorsing the Lee-Ros-Lehtinen Bill.

Please reach out to your member of Congress, support this bill. Help Congress end the discrimination against HIV.

Say "NO MORE" to  HIV criminalization laws!!!

Thanks for the post!
This is such an important issue.
Good to see a Republican from Florida get on this train. Hope she can sway others in her party.
And a tip of the hat to the Mayors too!
