The Governor's HIV/AIDS report card for his first 100 days is out...and the results are NOT pretty. Perhaps some extra tutoring sessions are in order?

Major props to the Chicago Department of Public Health and our partner organizations, including AIDS Foundation of Chicago and Everthrive Illinois, for standing firm against Governor Rauner's short-sighted proposal to cut $1,500,000,000 (yes, that's billion) from Medicaid in Illinois. We don't have a Medicaid problem, folks, we have a poverty problem! Say NO to balancing the budget on the backs of the most vulnerable among us. #PositiveBudgetIL

Governor Rauner's massive cuts to life-saving programs are short-sighted and dangerous...and are on the backs of the most vulnerable among us. Join our community partners, including AIDS Foundation of Chicago, to demand a #PositiveBudgetIL!

Governor Bruce Rauner has proposed the most destructive budget that the HIV community has seen in years: a $1.5 billion cut to Medicaid, a $6 million slash to HIV funding--representing a 25% cut--and a reduction in funding for the African American HIV/AIDS Response Fund by a STAGGERING 66%! What happens when these cuts are set into place? The issues don't disappear. In fact, they only get worse. These budget cuts will negatively impact each person in-need whom ALCC helps each day. The Governor's proposal is short-sighted and dangerous...and will cost Illinoisans far more $ down the road. DEMAND THAT THE GOVERNOR PASS A POSITIVE BUDGET! Join ALCC, AIDS Foundation of Chicago, and our many community partners and take action now (it only takes 30 seconds)! http://tinyurl.com/pquq86l
