Subject: Rally and Speak Out on Tuesday October 8th at Community Forum on AIDS emergency housing
Homeless People Living with HIV/AIDS NEED PERMANENT HOUSING AND YOU CAN HELP THEM GET IT...
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
There are currently 1600 homeless people living with AIDS in the commercial SRO's;
A State Supreme Court Judge has confirmed that they are living in substandard conditions;
Homeless people living with AIDS at the Malibu and other Upper West Side SRO hotels have been criminalized by the community; The City spends $2200 per month to send a homeless person living with AIDS to a horrible commercial SRO while cheaper apartments sit vacant; Placing homeless people in commercial SRO's leads to a depletion of affordable housing. The City needs to do more to end homelessness.
The NYC AIDS Housing Network is demanding that the City immediately place all people living with AIDS in commercial SRO's into permanent housing The City Council must pass a law ensuring that all New Yorkers living with AIDS will get an immediate referral to permanent housing;
The Mayor must create an AIDS housing plan immediately to address the crisis;
The MAYOR MUST RECOMMIT THE $25 MILLION FROM HOPWA TO BUILD AIDS HOUSING!
