ACTION ALERT: National HIV Testing Day - Call In to Protect HIV/AIDS Programs

Tell your Senators to fully support programs vital to people living with HIV/AIDS!

BACKGROUND

In early July, members of the Senate Appropriations Committee plan to vote on the federal spending bill that supports next year’s domestic HIV/AIDS programs.

As a part of National HIV Testing Day, we need to let Senators know that in addition to HIV testing, they should support full access to HIV prevention, care, treatment, and research! Please help us to prevent further cuts by urging Congress to fully fund these programs now!


ACT NOW

TODAY is National HIV Testing Day. Please call your Senators and tell them to prevent harmful cuts and to fully fund HIV prevention, care, treatment and research programs!

If you are a California resident:

If you are outside California, call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard and asked to be connected to your Senator: 202.224.3121.

Please call with this message:

Thank you for taking action today!
