Our work

Advocacy Days 2017

Join the AIDS Foundation of Chicago for Illinois Advocacy Days! Tell your legislators to #Fight4HIVLives and protect health care for people living with and vulnerable to HIV.

During this uncertain time for health care, our legislators must see our faces and hear our voices! Travel to Springfield with advocates from around the state to tell our elected officials they must work to pass a positive state budget that fully funds HIV/AIDS services and protect our access to affordable health care. 

This year's Advocacy Days will be Tuesday, April 4 and Wednesday, May 17. Buses will leave from AFC’s offices in Chicago, 200 W Jackson Blvd, or you can meet us in Springfield. All you need is you! AFC provides transportation, food, advocacy training and staff support.

Transportation assistance is available for those traveling directly to Springfield. Contact Maxx Boykin at mboykin@aidschicago.org.

If you plan on attending both Advocacy Days, you must register for each date separately by clicking on the dates below:


April 4         May 17
