The Campaign to End AIDS (C2EA) is a diverse, exciting new 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. In small towns and big cities across America, we're mobilizing to ensure the best treatment and care for all HIV-positive people...and HIV prevention methods backed by good science. Best of all? This November, we're taking our message to Washington, D.C...by the thousands!

We demand that our leaders...

1. Fully fund quality treatment and support services for all people living with HIV everywhere.
2. Ramp up HIV prevention at home and abroad, guided by science rather than ideology.
3. Increase research to find a cure, more effective treatments and better prevention tools.
4. Fight AIDS stigma and protect the civil rights of all people with HIV and AIDS everywhere.

In 2005, we urge lawmakers to...

1. Reauthorize and fully fund the Ryan White CARE Act.
2. Keep Medicaid strong for people with HIV/AIDS and all other beneficiaries.
3. Strengthen the global fight against AIDS by fully funding the Global Fund and backing 100 percent debt cancellation.
4. Restore and revive effective HIV prevention worldwide based on the best science.

The Campaign to End AIDS is marching forward this fall, as our 10 caravans get ready to move and activists all over the country kick off local events. C2EA won press coverage this month in Denver, Chicago, Knoxville, Nashville, Salt Lake City, New York City and Westerly, Rhode Island, among many others. We've won major new endorsers: the AIDS Alliance for Children, Youth and Families (fighting for pregnant women, children, youth and families affected by HIV/AIDS), the Human Rights Campaign (fighting for LGBT rights and equality) and Representative Eleanor Holmes Norton (fighting for the District of Columbia, where the AIDS epidemic is the fiercest in America.) And we're looking forward to joining together in Washington, DC November 5-8 to demand an end to AIDS.
