Please forward widely!


Dear participants of the upcoming UNGASS AIDS 2006 Review,

Members of the Global Youth Coalition on HIV/AIDS will be
participating in the exciting event (below and attached flyer) during
the Five Year Review of the UNGASS Declaration of Commitment on
HIV/AIDS in New York next week. They will be dialoguing directly with
prominent religious leaders on the realities of HIV/AIDS and how best to
scale up the response from the faith community.

For information on GYCA's youth UNGASS events, please visit

We hope you will join us at this event!

Best Regards,

Dear All,

It is with great anticipation that we invite you to attend the
attached event at the Church Center for the U.N.  on June 2nd from
1:15-2:45 p.m. Supported by the Ecumenical Working Group to the United
Nations, this panel discussion, entitled "Stigma, Choice, Change"
seeks to challenge the church into more powerful understandings of
itself and its inter-relationship with both the nation-state and the
world for the sake of the eradication of HIV/AIDS. Stigmas, often
created and reinforced by the church will be examined and best
practices for changing those stigmas will be illuminated.

It would be an honor to have you and/or those from your staff in
attendance.

Thank you for your consideration.
