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.
