AHF Advocacy

Welcome to the AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s Advocacy Action Center. AHF has a long history of advocating for social justice, starting with the early years of the HIV response. AHF began as a grassroots movement that helped defeat the infamous Proposition 64 California ballot measure, also known as the La Rouche Initiative in 1986, that would have jailed people living with HIV. Since then, AHF now champions equal access to health care, standing against hateful acts of stigma and discrimination, HIV prevention and treatment for all, fighting high drug prices, and the drug industry’s greed and housing justice. AHF welcomes your participation and offers you the opportunity to take action and speak out for what’s right and just.

1. Stop Hate Crimes in Georgia

Georgia is one of four states that does not have a hate crimes statute. We are calling on Georgia State Senators to support the “Georgia Hate Crimes Act.”

This bill would provide increased penalties for criminal defendants when the victim was selected based on his or her race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, mental disability or physical disability. It would give prosecutors and law enforcement officials in the state of Georgia important tools to make Georgia safer for everyone. Immediate action is needed to pass this bill when the Georgia General Assembly reconvenes on June 11, 2020.
