I don't see this as posted yet - it's copied from an e-mail I received yesterday.

Immigration Equality and The AIDS Institute would like to share our vital new informational brochure on the repeal of the HIV immigration and travel ban.  The brochure answers questions for clients, attorneys, AIDS service providers, and others.  It is available electronically and in print, in both English and Spanish.

You can read, print, and share the brochure at www.immigrationequality.org/HIVban

Please share these materials widely, and please don’t hesitate to request print copies of the brochure by contacting Immigration Equality at publications@immigrationequality.org

·       The repeal is good news for many people who abandoned past green card applications because they – or the family member they hoped to sponsor – couldn’t qualify for a waiver to the HIV ban. 

·       It is great news for tourists, students, and businesspeople living with HIV/AIDS, who were not able to visit the U.S. until now. 

·       It also provides an opportunity to encourage immigrants to seek testing and treatment, which some may have been afraid to do before. 

·       Most importantly, the repeal is proof that it is possible to end discriminatory immigration laws, and that some vestiges of AIDS-stigma are finally ending.

We hope you will find these materials useful and will share them with others inside and outside the US who may be affected by the repeal of the ban.
