We Can End AIDS
- MOBILIZATION FOR ECONOMIC JUSTICE & HUMAN RIGHTS -
JULY 24, 2012 - WASHINGTON, DC

STOP VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN, TRANSWOMEN AND GIRLS IN THE U.S. AND AROUND THE WORLD UNIVERSAL ACCESS TO HIV & AIDS SERVICES AS WELL AS ACCESS TO QUALITY HEALTH AND REPRODUCTIVE CARE

Washington, D.C. (July 23, 2012) - As tens of thousands of people will convene in Washington, D.C. for the XIX International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012), on July 24th at 12:00pm women will come together to march from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center to Lafayette Square in the WE CAN END AIDS Mobilization for Economic Rights & Human Justice (www.wecanendaids.org).

Women are demanding that women, including HIV-positive women and transwomen, should be respected and protected against all forms of fear, stigma, and judgment; violence and discrimination at the hands of our governments, medical care providers, social service systems, communities and families.

Women are tired of having their bodies legislated and disputed. WE proclaim that no government or persons should be allowed to dictate our sexual or reproductive lives for us.

Protect Women! Provide the necessary support and housing services that can assist women to maintain proper HIV care and prevention. Ensure women-centered and culturally appropriate prevention and care services that are integrated with reproductive care, violence prevention care and counseling. Make women a priority by funding the necessary research to create women-centered prevention tools and record data that is separated by sex and gender.

"Well-behaved women seldom make history." ? Laurel Thatcher Ulrich.
