Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) introduced The Repeal HIV Discrimination Act of 2013, proposed legislation encouraging state governments to repeal laws that are based on disproven fears.  As the article noted, CHLP's REPEAL HIV Discrimination Act Outreach Toolkit can help advocates to effectively engage state representatives.
