The Dream Hasn’t Died

Cameron Craig, (George Jefferson)

Hi, this is Cameron Craig, coming from you from part 2, of C2EA called The Stand Against AIDS. Before I comment on this monumentous trip to Oxford MS., I would like to thank the following people:  Dr. Leonard Berkowitz from Brooklyn Hopsital, Nancy Margenson from Out of the Box Productions, Clem from Bernie’s Fish and Chips in the Bronx, Dahlia Heller from the NYC DOH and Citiwide Harm Reduction for their donations.  These are all the people who made it possible for Weezy and I to be part of this caravan.

I would like to go back to 2005 when we began C2EA Paving the Way Caravan – I would like to thank the people of Newark for taking control of their government and voted out a man who was against needle exchange who condemned his people  to a life long agony of drug addiction, Hepatitis C and HIV/AIDS ( Sharpe James – former Mayor of Newark).  We’re glad to see NJCRI for becoming the only needle exchange in Newark – there is no other needle exchange in Newark.  Because of this initiative, we hope to slow down the spread of drug addiction, Hepatitis C, and HIV/AIDS within the community. 

Because of the work of countless agencies around the country, we are mobilizing again to force the two presidential candidates to enact a National AIDS Strategy in their first 100 days. This is a pandemic of enormous proportions that ‘s affecting women more than us men. And it is time that this country take a Stand and come to grips with the fact that enough is not being done to stop the spread of HIV in America.  We hope that with this initiative, we can convince the two nominees to come up with an effective plan of stopping the spread of HIV/AIDS within America.  More will come within the days that follow as we get closer and closer to Oxford MS for the first presidential debate.
