Lambda Legal, Californians for HIV Criminalization Reform and Equality California would like to invite you and your organization to join us for HIV & LGBT Advocacy Day on May 16 at the Capitol in Sacramento!

HIV & LGBT Advocacy Day is being held in conjunction with a number of progressive organizations to bring together a broad coalition of LGBT leaders, community members, people living with HIV and other activists to make our voices heard at the Capitol!

When: Tuesday, May 16, 2017
Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm
Where: Area 27, California State Capitol, Sacramento, CA
Register at: eqca.org/advocacyday

This year, along with Lambda Legal and four other organizations, Equality California is a sponsor of SB239, a bill to reform California’s outdated HIV criminalization laws. Advocacy on behalf of SB239 will be a part of the “HIV/AIDS” track participants can choose, and there will also be tracks addressing critical issues such as health care, immigration, transgender rights, and other LGBT priority areas.

Lambda Legal and CHCR is committed to having as many people living with HIV as possible participate this year. Registration is $25 which includes lunch, training and legislative office visits. High school and university students can register for free and travel grants are available here: action.eqca.org/students Participants are expected to find transportation to and from Sacramento on Tuesday, May 16, 2017, but we will do all we can to ensure that every person living with HIV who wants to join us will be there! Participants can apply for a round-trip travel grant at: action.eqca.org/travelgrant.

HIV & LGBT Advocacy Day participants will receive training on legislative priorities and how to advocate for these priorities. Every participant will then engage in face-to-face meetings with California legislators and their staff, urging them to pass critical legislation that will protect and expand the civil liberties of all Californians.
