AIDS TREATMENT NEWS Issue #213, December 23, 1994
National AIDS organizations are hurrying to find out about the
new members of Congress. Have they had any involvement with
AIDS, or with other health issues? Are they likely to be
friendly, hostile, or indifferent? What issues of any sort are
most important to them?
If you have such information about your representatives or
other members of Congress, especially the new members, you can
help by calling some or all of the organizations listed below.
The best way to make sure the information gets to those who
