This past Wednesday, DRCNet issued an action alert asking our supporters to send letters to the editor to newspapers in New Jersey, and for New Jersey residents to contact their state legislators, in support of Thomas Scozarre and Diana McCague of the Chai project Needle Exchange Program in New Brunswick, New Jersey, who were found guilty last Monday of violating New Jersey's controversial law banning needle exchange. New Jersey is third in the nation in drug-related AIDS transmission.

If you missed the bulletin, please take a moment to read it at http://www.drcnet.org/rapid/1997/8-13-1.html. If you've not yet acted, we urge you to take a few minutes now to demand an end to the outlawing of compassion and public health.
