Register for the GTZ-IL Omnibus Town Hall! at https://p2a.co/siTJUSE
Join Getting to Zero Illinois and advocates across the state on February 28th @5:30pm CST as we discuss the new GTZ-IL Omnibus Bill being introduced by AIDS Foundation Chicago.
This bill is critical in the fight against HIV, as these new funding opportunities aim to increase access to clinical and supportive services for HIV treatment and PrEP. Additionally, these investments are grounded in racial health equity to address the health disparities experienced by people living with or vulnerable to HIV—especially among our Black, Latino/a/x, and LGBTQIA communities.
Come ready for an info session regarding the contents of the bill, followed by a panel discussion of how this bill will impact organizations within our GTZ community, and wrapped up with a conversation about what you can do as an advocate to help get it passed. GTZ-IL aims to provide you with the tools to become stronger advocates against the HIV epidemic in the state of Illinois. With YOUR voice, we can get this bill approved and Get to Zero by 2030!
