We’ve teamed up with the amazing and dedicated activists at Health GAP, ACT UP, Treatment Action Group, the Center for Popular Democracy, the Network for Long COVID Justice and many others to demand that President Biden and the U.S. Congress take urgent action to confront our global health nightmare.
We’re coming together in protest, not just about a single disease, but to call out the multiple, colliding pandemic crises that our government has continued to neglect for far too long—and that includes Long COVID and ME/CFS.
One of the four protest demands is to call on President Biden and Congress to:
So mark your calendars for this day of action. Sign up to let World AIDS Day organizers know you plan to participate (virtually or on-site). We’ll share more details next week.

People with ME and Long COVID need to be careful and only do what they are able to. But we also know that this is an important moment in cross-disability and cross-disease organizing, and that coming together is how we build power to demand the sweeping structural changes we need from our government.
That is why we’re headed back to the White House to protest on World AIDS Day.
