JUSTICE is HIV Prevention
1. On February 8, the Supreme Court of Canada will hear two landmark cases about HIV, sex and the criminal law.
If you live in Toronto, come out against the Criminalization of HIV in Canada. AIDS ACTION NOW is hosting a DAY OF ACTION today. For more information visit AIDS ACTION NOW.
2. Last summer, CeCe McDonald, a young African American transgender woman, was violently attacked in South Minneapolis. As she and several friends were walking to the grocery store, a group of white adults standing outside of a bar started shouting racist and transphobic insults at them. Tragically, the violence did not stop there- one of the adults slashed CeCe across the face with a broken bottle, cutting all the way through her cheek. The only person facing charges is CeCe McDonald.
