World AIDS Day March - Forward to an AIDS Free Generation w/ NO Budget Cuts to AIDS Programs
Tuesday Nov 27, 2012 12:00pm-2:00pm in Washington DC
People with AIDS will not go over the cliff - so we're going to DC to fight back! We are currently facing the most severe budget cuts to AIDS prevention, treatment and services that we have ever seen - and our nation's decision makers MUST stop these cuts from happening. Our march will happen just a few days before the world turns it's attention to World AIDS Day on December 1st.

The march starts at 12 Noon on Tuesday, November 27th, at the headquarters of the Democratic National Convention at 430 S Capitol St SE.

We will march to congressional office buildings to tell our nation's decision makers that we need to move FORWARD:
- to an AIDS-free generation
- NO budget cuts to the Global Fund and PEPFAR
- NO budget cuts to the Ryan White Care Act and HOPWA
- Protection of Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security
- Pass a Robin Hood Tax on Wall Street to End AIDS
