TAG Marks 25 Years of Activism

As TAG marks 25 years of activism and advocacy, our mission is more vital than ever. A quarter-century of progress promoting research, prevention, and treatment critical to ending the HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis (TB), and hepatitis C (HCV) epidemics is at risk.

We are more determined than ever to shape policy toward defeating HIV and ending the TB and HCV epidemics, as quickly as possible.

To achieve our goals in the current challenging political environment, TAG has launched a new initiative, the 25th Anniversary Campaign, that will make our powerful and relentless voice stronger than ever to:

RESIST attacks on people living with or at risk for HIV, TB, and HCV, and on the research and programs they need to stay healthy;

DEFEND vital programs including those driven by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) research, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Medicaid, AIDS Drug Assistance Programs, President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), and USAID, among others;

EXPAND, as quickly as possible, research, prevention, treatment, care, and support programs for HIV, TB, and HCV and ultimately

END these three epidemics by intensifying support for NIH-funded research on HIV cure, vaccines, and better treatments, working with New York State and City on the plan to end AIDS as an epidemic by 2020, and expanding our work nationally and in three southern jurisdictions to develop ending-the-epidemic strategies in these regions.

To succeed, TAG must invest in accelerated advocacy and communications activities, programs, and platforms so we can:

◙ Create Action Alerts and Rapid Responses to emerging threats and opportunities in real time;
 Catalyze and empower TAG supporters to engage in advocacy at the federal, state, and local levels; and
◙ Create a regularly updated strategy and data resource bank for activists and allies to use in our common work.

We live in an unprecedented political era that, daily, brings new threats to TAG’s work.  In this, our 25th year, we need your commitment more than ever before. TAG’s 25th Anniversary Campaign’s goal is $500,000, and we are committed to raising $250,000 in each of the next two years.

We hope you will consider a special contribution to our 25th Anniversary Campaign that will help TAG to expand its leadership role in defeating HIV and ending the HCV and TB epidemics.

Gifts to the 25th Anniversary Campaign may be pledged and made in two payments by December 31, 2018.
