ADAP crisis national call-in alert, starting June 14.
The SAVE ADAP committee of the AIDS Treatment Activist Coalition (ATAC) and others are beginning a summer grassroots action campaign with a "call Congress week" during June 14-18. But calls after the 18th will help as well, since the House of Representatives is expected to begin deciding on ADAP and other AIDS funding levels in the next few weeks. Congress needs to hear more from voters who care about the program.
Information on how to help will be posted at http://www.atac-usa.org (click on the Save ADAP Committee). Information about ADAP in your state is at http://www.atdn.org (click on The Access Project).
For important action alerts on this and other AIDS issues, sign up for Project Inform's Treatment Action Network (TAN). For more information on TAN, see http ://www.projectinform.org/org/policy.html.
An alert explaining background you should know will be posted at http:/www.atac-usa.org. That site is now being revised, however, so until the alert is available there we have posted a copy at http://www.aidsnews.org/adap.
