Last month a national coalition of HIV/AIDS activists sent all presidential candidates a letter calling on them to make ending HIV/AIDS a priority. Yesterday the Clinton campaign responded with a letter agreeing to meet with representatives from the coalition. An excerpt:
Secretary Clinton is delighted to accept your invitation and is available to meet on May 13th in New York City to discuss how we can build on this agenda. We look forward to working with you to determine a convenient time, location, and list of participants for this meeting. To encourage an intimate, policy-focused discussion, our preference is to limit attendance to 12-15 participants. On behalf of Secretary Clinton and everyone at Hillary for America, thank you for your leadership in helping to organize this meeting. Dominic [Lowell, LGBT Outreach Director] and I are eager to work with you to invite a diverse group of leaders to participate, and would appreciate you conveying our thanks to the other signatories of the letter.
The coalition anticipates receiving a similar response from the Sanders campaign.
