Barbara Lee, Code Pink Surface in Denver

Here at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Congressperson Barbara Lee told a crowd at a Global AIDS Alliance Fund reception
yesterday: “AIDS is the greatest humanitarian and national security crisis in the world today.” She had been announced by two fellow Bay
Areans: first, actor Danny Glover (who had startled attendees by announcing that one in every twenty adults in Washington DC is
HIV-positive) and then Sen. Barbara Boxer, who called Lee “my sister, my leader.” Lee told the crowd that she wants the next international AIDS conference to be held “in my district – in Oakland, California.”
