Scott A. Schoettes, Lucy Bradley-Springer, Gina Brown, Ulysses W. Burley III, Michelle Ogle, and Grissel Granados all resigned from PACHA on June 13th, a decision that Schoettes, the Counsel and HIV Project Director at Lambda Legal, detailed in an editorial for Newsweek.
“As advocates for people living with HIV, we have dedicated our lives to combatting this disease,” Schoettes wrote, “and no longer feel we can do so effectively within the confines of an advisory body to a president who simply does not care.”Created in 1995, PACHA exists to provide advice, information and recommendations regarding programs, policies and research to promote effective treatment, prevention and cure of HIV and AIDS.
