Founded in 1988, AIDS Legal Council of Chicago (ALCC) uses the power of the law to secure health, dignity, and stability for people with HIV, individuals facing homelessness, and chronically-ill children. We assist low-income people manage the complexities, barriers, and unique stigma they face to remaining healthy. In order to achieve our mission, our work focuses on three core areas: legal assistance, education, and public policy.

IMPORTANT: The ACA Healthcare Marketplace, healthcare.gov, is now open! You may enroll in health insurance or make changes to your current plan. If you were enrolled this year, you will be automatically re-enrolled for 2015; however, there may be other options that are better for you.
ALCC is still evaluating the new plans for 2015 to see which ones coordinate with ADAP/medication and premium assistance programs, so we recommend not enrolling in a new plan until that information has been released next week. Enrollment closes Feb. 15, 2015, but if you wish to have the insurance active on January 1, 2015, the enrollment deadline is December 15th. Call us @ 312-427-8990 to schedule an appointment!
#GivingTuesday is an international day of giving on December 2, 2014, when we come together to prove that the holiday season isn’t just about shopping. And guess what? YOUR DONATION WILL BE DOUBLED! ALCC's Board of Directors is matching up to $4,000. So please consider a gift to ALCC, as each $1 you give will become $2. http://aidslegal.com/donate
The media must do better. Unfair and sensationalized reporting in these cases perpetuate stigma and discrimination against people with HIV. Read the full statement by AIDS Foundation of Chicago below.

Last Sunday was a perfect day for the AIDS Run & Walk...and the Legal Beagles were delighted to be part of it! Thank you SO much for supporting the Beagles and catapulting ALCC to the #3 team overall! If you didn't get a chance to support the Beagles but wish to do so, you still can.
