Political junkies in the audience can most likely name the most memorable speeches ever given at the national conventions of the political parties. From “The New Deal Speech” of FDR to the “Extremism in Defense of Liberty,” the one delivered by Barry Goldwater. But they would be remiss to overlook a speech given by Elizabeth Glaser at the 1992 Democratic National Convention, held here in New York City on July 14th, a speech that changed the way this nation thought about and approached the AIDS epidemic. Here to discuss that with us this evening, all the work in progress that has ensued since, and what still needs to be done is Chip Lyons, the president and CEO of the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatrics AIDS Foundation.
