Hi guys, it's Citris! I'm so excited that I was chosen by the Youth Action Institute to participate in the Campaign to End AIDS (C2EA) summit this summer in Boston! I'll learn policy and community organizing skills that I can bring back to Detroit to create real change around HIV/AIDS. But in order to go, I need your help to raise $600 by 05/20/2013. I know thats right around the corner but any little cash will help all they are looking for is that i tried to raise the money and they will help the rest of the way...... Thank you for all your Support!
The Campaign to End AIDS (C2EA) is a diverse, exciting coalition of people who are living with HIV & AIDS, their advocates and their loved ones. Together, we're demanding that our leaders exert the political will to stop the epidemic, in the U.S. and abroad, once and for all.
The goal of the Youth Action Institute is to turn out young AIDS activists and leaders. Since its first year in 2005, C2EA has brought a diverse group of 14 to 29-year-olds to a local community and teaches them to become the AIDS policy-makers and protest leaders of today and tomorrow. While some of the hundreds of participants through the years arrived with a bit of knowledge about AIDS, most were just energetic young people from different walks of life — inexperienced but eager to learn.
