Obama's AIDS Advisors' Meeting!
« on: June 14, 2010, 09:34:16 PM »
From CHAMP...6/29/10: Dial In/LiveBlog Obama's AIDS Advisors' Meeting! From: "HIV Prevention Justice Alliance"  
The Presidential Advisory Committee on HIV/AIDS (PACHA) is the top advisory body to President Obama on the epidemic. Its membership includes people living with HIV, and it also includes long-time allies of CHAMP and members of our HIV Prevention Justice Alliance.

And, thanks in part to your efforts demanding community involvement in the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, PACHA members are currently reviewing a confidential draft of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy.

We want to make sure you knew about their next meeting, which will be conducted over the phone and is open for public participation.

Please note that only eight outsiders will be able to give public comment, using the process outlined below, but others can call in to monitor the meeting.

We'll be LIVE-BLOGGING during the call - meaning you can log into www.preventionjustice.org and send your observations and comments as the call is in session!

The official announcement for the call is below. "See you" on the 29th!


David, Julie, Pat, Waheedah and all of us at CHAMP and the HIV PJA

Hi YakaMein...I got it via e-mail from Champ and I've been getting e-mails from them for a few years now, I just thought I would paste this over here.  I have been to a couple of their meetings so if you contact them let me know why it wasn't posted yet to their website.  Thanks.
