Over the past three years, we have been fighting together for a National HIV/AIDS Strategy.

Today, it will be launched by President Obama.

We invite you to join us in ensuring the Strategy becomes a tool for HIV Prevention Justice.

TODAY: The press conference launching the Strategy (2 pm Eastern) will be a live webcast from the White House complex at WhiteHouse.gov/live. Join us for a LIVE BLOG at www.preventionjustice.org DURING the webcast to share your thoughts, analysis, and ideas. President Obama will also speak on the Strategy via live webcast at 6 pm.

We have been told by numerous people involved in the creation of the strategy that we MUST "hold their feet to the fire" on implementation. If we agree that the Strategy has key elements that reflect human rights and principles of HIV Prevention Justice, you can rely on the HIV Prevention Justice Alliance to join together in action to demand implementation and monitoring. Thus, we will make sure you have all available materials to help analyze and act on the Strategy.

Below, you will find the information for:

- TODAY's live web broadcast and the HIV Prevention Justice Alliance Live Blog of the Strategy launch (as well as the link for watching the President's address on the Strategy at 6 pm ET).

- resources for evaluating the Strategy and/or leveraging its release for local use.

- an invitation to a conference call sponsored by the Coalition for a National AIDS Strategy.

- the New York Times story from yesterday's paper with leaks from the Strategy itself.

As the Strategy launches today, know that it was your dedication, passion and voices that demanded its creation. And know that we must stay in the fight if it is to succeed. Our thanks to you, and our invitation to move forward together.

Yours in the struggle,

David, Dazon, Julie, Pat, Waheedah, Walt and all of us at CHAMP and the HIV Prevention Justice Alliance

1) TODAY: webcasts and liveblog:

On Tuesday, July 13, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and White House officials will unveil the Obama Administration's National HIV/AIDS Strategy.  Watch the presentation of the plan online at WhiteHouse.gov/live at 2:00 p.m. ET. Open another web browser window and join the HIV Prevention Justice Alliance Live Blog at the same time at www.preventionjustice.org.

Later, President Barack Obama will deliver remarks at a White House reception honoring the HIV/AIDS Community.  The President's address can also be viewed online at WhiteHouse.gov/live at 6:00 p.m. ET.

2) How to get the Strategy, and tools for evaluating and leveraging it:  

From the Coalition for a National AIDS Strategy:

On Tuesday afternoon, the Strategy will be posted online at: WhiteHouse.gov/ONAP.  To help prepare community members for the announcement, the Coalition for a National AIDS Strategy developed this Guide to Communicating about the Strategy, which offers ideas on how to leverage the plan to garner local and national attention for urgent issues in our communities.  Other helpful resources include the Gender Monitoring Toolkit and Report Card developed by a coalition of groups to evaluate and monitor the Strategy from a human rights and gender perspective.  Moving Beyond the Status Quo summarizes the recommendations of an independent working group to improve chances the Strategy is effective.  Other community recommendations for the plan are posted at nationalaidsstrategy.org.

3) Conference call to discuss the Strategy:

The Coalition for a National AIDS Strategy will host a community conference call on Tuesday, August 10 at 2:00 p.m. ET to share community reactions to the Strategy, report on the International AIDS Conference taking place later this month in Vienna, and discuss advocacy steps needed to move implementation of the Strategy forward.  The HIV Prevention Justice Alliance will ensure you have the details on how to join.
