Even though McCain might be MIA in Oxford Friday (still unclear), the Stand Against AIDS will continue to be very present calling on the next president to have a National AIDS Strategy. 

Today there was a powerful rally again at the town square in Oxford with representatives from all the caravans sharing their stories. A reoccurring theme was that even with Medicaid and Ryan White which is supposed to be the safety net, there are still way too many people who don’t have medical care and are dying of AIDS.

In the afternoon,, some C2EAers staged an impromptu rally to take advantage of the press coverage that has descended on Oxford. Then everyone relaxed at a bbq in a beautiful park. Dazon Dixon Diallo organized a Southern women’s affinity group to allow people to tell their stories and share what is needed for a National AIDS Strategy before tomorrow’s session.
