There will also be presentations about battles for treatment and healthcare access, housing, social services and survival benefits, the transformation of AIDS research, and against HIV criminalization, prisoner mistreatment, and quarantine of HIV-positive Haitians at Guantanamo.
Attendees will hear activists from ACT UP/NY and allied groups and view videos, all highlighting campaigns that began years ago but now continue in new ways. changing the terrain in the battle against HIV/AIDS. There will also be training workshops on nonviolent direct action and communications strategies for activists.
