Jim Wallis: Fight Against AIDS 'Starts With Me'

Sojourners President and CEO Jim Wallis joined voices worldwide rallying in the fight against AIDS. The ONE Campaign — an international nonprofit focused on global health and poverty issues — today launched its "It Starts With Me" video campaign. 

According to ONE, in the past 10 years, the number of people with access to life-saving AIDS treatment has gone up from 300,000 to 8 million because of efforts like these. Cutting funds that provide these treatments means risking lives. As Congress discusses the "fiscal cliff" and negotiates what they will and will not cut, people across the globe are calling on them to protect the most vulnerable. Hear more from Jim Wallis:
