Wilco + National HIV Testing Day

National HIV Testing Day, on June 27, is an annual campaign coordinated by the National Association of People with AIDS to encourage people of all ages to "Take the Test, Take Control." Early HIV diagnosis is critical, so people who are infected can fully benefit from available life-saving treatments. Currently, almost 40% of people with HIV are not diagnosed until they have already developed AIDS. That can be up to 10 years after they first became infected with HIV. Finding out whether you are infected with HIV is the first step to improving your health and the health of your partners. Find a testing site at www.hivtest.org

I just signed up to host a American Dream House Meeting run by MoveOn.org Civic Action.

We need to rebuild the American Dream, and the time is ripe. There's a new sense of energy and urgency across the country—communities are under attack but we're fighting back. People are standing up to protect our families and our future.

We know we have the resources to create good jobs for millions of Americans if all of us pay our fair share in taxes. The problem is that millionaires and big corporations aren't—that's why we're creating a powerful agenda to rebuild the American Dream. We'll use the agenda to push Congress to make the American Dream a reality for all of us, not just corporations and the rich.

But we can't accomplish anything until we come together—to share our stories, fears, hopes, and ideas. Our path to the American Dream begins with a conversation among concerned friends and neighbors at hundreds of American Dream house meetings on July 16 and 17. We'll gather at homes, church basements, and community centers across the country—not just to talk about what a new American Dream looks like, but to commit to each other that we'll stand together to make it happen. These simple house meetings will launch a grassroots agenda-creation process that we'll use to drive the American Dream movement forward.
