Hey everybody – great news!
Just now the LA City AIDS Coordinator’s Office announced they have identified bridge funding to support HIV services during the 3 month gap between 4/1 and 6/30. Council members, the mayor, and Ricky Rosales, the AIDS Coordinator championed this cause and deserve congratulations for standing behind these vital services. Thank you so much to for standing up for HIV prevention programs, the people we serve, and our communities. Thank you also – and especially – the community members who really took the lead in galvanizing the community: Shoshanna Scholar, Joe Newland & Dont Rhine.
The council members heard us at the budget meeting and they heard from many more of us over the past week and a half. It’s really encouraging to see what a strong and diverse network of people who care about HIV/AIDS can do.
