What is C2EA and what do we do?
The Campaign to End AIDS (C2EA) is a diverse, exciting coalition of people living with HIV & AIDS, their advocates and their loved ones. Together, we're demanding that our leaders exert the political will to stop the epidemic, in the U.S. and abroad, once and for all.
From our friends at Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation
On the heels of President Obama’s State of the Union Speech and in advance of the release of the Administration’s budget, the convening groups of the Federal AIDS Policy Partnership (FAPP) and the Global AIDS Policy Partnership (GAPP) worked together to post a petition to the White House website’s “We the People” section.
Click the link below to sign the petition today! Please share widely!
As you will see the petition calls on President Obama to fully support funding for an AIDS-free generation.
We have 30 days to get 100,000 signatures to garner a response from the White House.
As you are all well aware there are few advocacy communities as strong as ours, and this is a great opportunity to work together and show the White House that we are serious about ending AIDS in the U.S. and globally, and that our voice is strong.
We ask that you share the petition with your organizations, supporters and grassroots. 100,000 may seem like a daunting goal but with the weight of these communities behind it we should be able to reach and exceed it.
Some in the community are using the hashtags #endaids, #aidsfreegeneration, and #dontcutnow in social media, and we ask that as you push the petition over your own social media channels you consider doing the same.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
