Dear Friends, (please RSVP)

You are invited to a strategy meeting on inserting Global AIDS, debt
and trade
into the California Primary debate. PAUL DAVIS and JENNIFER COHN will
be in Oakland
on Tuesday, February 10, 6-8 PM, Women of Color Resource Center,
1601 Telegraph, Suite 303, Oakland (19th St. BART). Pizza, fruit and
water/juices
will be awaiting you. RSVP to John Iversen 510-841-4339.

The event is co-sponsored by HealthGAP, ACT UP East Bay and
Priority Africa Network.

Davis and Cohn have spent much time in Iowa and New Hampshire
raising these issues. Due largely to their efforts all major Democratic
candidates have agreed to spend $6 billion annually on Global AIDS.
Approximately 3 times what Bush requested for 2004. We need to
keep the heat on in California.

Paul Davis is a long time AIDS activist from ACT UP Philadelphia and
HealthGAP. He was the smart, politically savvy driving force behind
the huge grassroots
initiative which forced President Bush to adopt a global AIDS plan
unveiled in his 2003 State of the Union address. Davis has been the
driving force behind most global AIDS initiatives aimed at US elected
officials.

Jen Cohn is a fourth year medical student at University of Pennsylvania
School of Medicine and a member of the HealthGAP (Global Access
Project)
Coalition. Jen also works with the American
Medical Student Association (AMSA) and with the Health Professional
Student
AIDS Advocacy Network (HPSAAN).

From the meeting we hope you can make a commitment to attend at least
one
primary/candidate event to raise these important issues. We will keep
all
who attend or call updated on all candidates' appearances throughout
the
Bay Area.
