Hope everyone is doing well. So TJ is planning on developing a campaign against the HRA. I was wondering if any of you have any already compiled data on varying experiences that any of your TGNCPOC clients have dealt with i.e. surveys, complaint forms, anything that TJ can use to share with Robert Doar, Commissioner of HRA. TJ will be working on creating written and video taped statements of peoples varying experiences with discrimination at the HRA. Any help that you could provide will be greatly appreciated.

The Matthew Shepard Act, a critical Federal hate crimes law, haspassed both houses of Congress. But it's in serious danger ofnot becoming law if we don't act now. The House and Senate arereconciling their versions of the bill, and it's hit a politicalsnag. They'll make their final decisions very soon. Will you take one minute and send a message to Congress tellingthem to make sure the Matthew Shepard Act makes it to PresidentBush's desk for signature? Please take action right now!

3. Is AIDS less of an issue now that people are living longer with the drug?
4. For men under 30, who do not remember the way the community suffered massive losses in the 80's and early 90's, does concern about prevention impact your daily lives?
5. Do you think people view AIDS as a disease that you can easily live with if well-medicated, like diabetes, or do people still view it as dangerous and deadly?
6. Have you noticed a decrease or increase in safer sex practices among your friends and peers?
