After you've read this letter, and the succinct declaration on the website cited below, please consider passing this along to family, friends, colleagues, organizations. Thank you. Em


 At the recommendation of one of your colleagues, I am writing to invite you to endorse the Vienna Declaration, an official declaration of the XVIII International AIDS Conference being held July 18-23.

The Vienna Declaration is a scientific statement stressing that conventional illicit drug policies have failed to achieve their intended objectives and that evidence-based public health approaches are are urgently needed.

As a member of the writing committee, I am writing to ask you and any organizations you are affiliated with to endorse the declaration, and send a clear message to policy-makers worldwide that the international community is seriously concerned about the overwhelmingly negative health and social consequences of illicit drug policies.

To read the the declaration, please visit www.viennadeclaration.com. There you will also find more information about the team of international experts and world-class drug policy and HIV organizations already endorsing the declaration.

The strength of the Vienna Declaration will be demonstrated by the widespread support it receives internationally from organizations, physicians and academics, affected communities and the general public. We would therefore appreciate it if, after signing on, you would share the declaration with your colleagues and friends and encourage them to endorse the declaration as well.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

on behalf of the Vienna Declaration Writing Committee

Roughly roundabout somewhere in the eighteenth or nineteenth century, Sodomite begat Homosexual out of moral, medical and legal models, bequeathing him Identity, who inbred with Nuclear Family and Industrialism to spawn Homophobia.
