World AIDS Day 2009 - Put the Pressure On!

Maine AIDS Alliance Call to Action:

December 1, 2009 10:30am to Noon
Maine State House, Hall of Flags, Augusta

Please join the HIV/AIDS community for an event with lawmakers, community leaders, and those affected by HIV in a call to action at the Maine State House. Looming state funding cuts are threatening our prevention, education, housing and care programs here in Maine. We must show lawmakers that HIV/AIDS continues to affect thousands in Maine and cutting these programs will have very serious effects on the health and well being of Mainers.

Join us to show lawmakers and the Maine public that we MUST maintain vital HIV/AIDS services.

On display will be panels of the AIDS Quilt and 1,300 individualized postcards from Mainers across the state; each postcard will represent one person living with HIV/AIDS in the state of Maine.
