DOCUMENTS


The following documents are about ACT UP New York's organization, and means of how to become an activist.  We are dedicated to empowering groups to take direct action to help end the AIDS Crisis. ACT UP is committed to a democratic inclusive activism.

Because of the length of these files, we encourage people to download and distribute them.  Please be sure to look through as many as possible, since several sections interconnect.

 FAQ:    > I have been unable to print out your web pages and I finally figured out

If you use Netscape, check the black and white options in the print dialog box, the black background disappears and the white text prints as black. I'm told the Microsoft's web-browser has a problem with this. You could also copy and paste onto another word program. Additionally, you could have the pages "mailed" (i.e. save as) to you which will come as text files.
