WHAT HOUSING WORKS ADVOCACY DOES
Housing Works engages in an array of advocacy strategies to further our mission of ending the twin crises of AIDS and homelessness: traditional government lobbying; regular legislative visits in Albany by HIV-positive clients; civil disobedience and street protests; and impact litigation. This inside-plus-outside pressure on elected officials has made Housing Works a force to be reckoned with on the local, state, national, and international levels. Housing Works maintains advocacy offices in New York City, Albany, Washington, D.C., and Port-au-Prince, Haiti. We also maintain close partnerships with the Haitian AIDS organizations Fondation Esther Boucicault Stanislas and Plateforme Haitienne des Association PVVIH and the Puerto Rican harm reduction group Intercambios Puerto Rico.
THE HOUSING WORKS AIDS-FREE CAMPAIGN
Housing Works’ AIDS-FREE Campaign is a collaborative, multi-year initiative committed to ending the AIDS epidemic—in New York State by 2020, in the United States by 2025, and worldwide by 2030. With recent advancements in science, data, and health-care access, we can end AIDS if we have the resolve, even without a cure. For more information about what “AIDS-FREE” means, and how we get to an AIDS-FREE future, see the “AIDS-FREE Campaign Overview.”
