Today, Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-Oakland) recognized National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on the House floor.

“After more than 30 years of struggle, our collective progress reflects the heights that can be reached when all stakeholders work together to achieve common goals. Now is not the time to stop and we look forward to working with our colleagues until an end of AIDS becomes the reality of our lifetime,” Lee said earlier in a statement.
