California has an opportunity to once again lead the way in the country’s fight against HIV discrimination and stigma with Senate Bill 239 – and we need your support to pass this historic bill!
Authored by Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) and Assemblymember Todd Gloria (D-San Diego), SB 239 would modernize outdated and discriminatory HIV criminal laws which unfairly criminalize people living with HIV and only serve to fuel stigma and fear.
SB 239 will bring California laws in line with current scientific understanding of HIV, reduce HIV discrimination, and improve public health.
