Question

Hello,

Hello, I am a sophomore attending Alabama A&M University in Huntsville , Alabama . I have intentions on running for Miss Alabama A&M in 2008-2009 and my platform is "Preserving Our People: The AIDS Epidemic". I am writing to request that you help me to research, define, educate, and involve myself and others in the epidemic that is slowly destroying our people. I would greatly appreciate it if you would send me information on AIDS and the epidemic as well as the effect that it is having on the African American race as well as treatment and counseling centers in the Huntsville area.

Thank you in advance.
