AIDSLaw of Louisiana
June 23, 2010

AIDSLaw of Louisiana, Inc. (Non-Profit) is the only specialized HIV/AIDS non-profit law firm in the state of Louisiana. I have watched AIDSLaw fight stigma and discrimination in the HIV/AIDS community, get clients on social security disability which gets them off free care, they have launched a new and exciting immigration phase to their strategic plan whereby they are assiting immigrants with residency/VISA issues. AIDSLaw is invloved with making policy changes to schoold boards and hospitals where their policies do not conform with current HIV/AIDS law. AIDSLaw advocates on behalf of the HIV/AIDS community and it has being doing so for 20 years. It is a great organization that fights for change and promotes access to care.

The Great!
