Help Out AIDS Action Baltimore

A letter from AIDS Action Baltimore to our community

Dear Friends:

AIDS Action Baltimore (AAB) has been providing essential services to people with HIV/AIDS since 1987. Thanks to your generosity, we’re still standing after a long hard financial battle. We know only too well that times are still tough, but as we commemorate our 30th year of service, we hope we can count on your continued support which will help us maintain our many HIV/AIDS programs. We still desperately need your help to keep our doors open and continue to provide our many essential services to the Baltimore HIV/AIDS community. We hope you will remember us and continue your loyal support. Please help us in any way you can. Your donations will enable us to continue our marvelous record of benevolence and compassion with only a rate of 2.8% overhead in 2016. The amount of work we accomplish and the effect we have had on the war against HIV with only four full-time and one part-time employees is truly amazing!

The Trump administration’s Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, main education experience is in the political and financial support for charter schools, and as an owner of a firm that pursues people in default on their student loans. Some have praised her rollback of Obama-era regulations that stripped young men accused of unwanted sex of any presumption of innocence in university tribunals. Others have criticized her for the same. On the LGBT front, DeVos rescinded directives that recommended students have access to facilities based on their asserted gender identities.

Harrisburg – In a five-to-one decision issued November 22nd, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court upheld a lower court’s ruling that permanently bars Dawn A. Segal from holding judicial office. Segal, an open lesbian, served as a municipal-court judge in Philadelphia for about six years until she was suspended without pay last year due to improper conversations with another judge. The majority opinion states that Segal’s actions were “an affront to the administration of justice and diminish confidence in the judiciary at large.” The sole dissenter recommended that the case be remanded to the Court of Judicial Discipline for further review to ensure consistent discipline for problematic judges.
