It’s been another amazing year at VOCAL-NY: Together with our partners, we passed laws to protect tenants in three-quarter houses, expanded eligibility for services for runaway homeless youth, hosted the first-in-the-country summit to end hepatitis C, and distributed over 100,000 syringes to members of our community. Now it’s time to celebrate!
Thanks to you – our wonderful community of members, allies, and supporters – 2016 was another year of success for VOCAL-NY. Together, we expanded access to lifesaving services for over 7,000 HIV+ New Yorkers, lifted barriers to treatment for people living with hepatitis C, held the nation’s largest HIV/AIDS lobby day in Albany, distributed more than 100,000 of syringes, and trained hundreds of New Yorkers on how to reverse an overdose. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
