Help Change The Life Of A HIV-positive 13-year-old Honor Student

Last month we told you about an HIV-positive 13-year-old boy was denied enrollment into a Hershey-funded boarding school.

The school's assholes leaders decided he wouldn't be accepted to the school because he is a “direct threat to the health and safety” of his fellow students. (Get the full story in the video above.)

Disgusted by this injustice? The you can help get this young man in school by telling the Hershey heads how you feel.

AHF’s No Kisses for Hershey campaign has made it easy for you to denounce this blatant discrimination by offering a way for supporters to send in e-letters to the Hershey School Board of Directors.

We need to help end the spread of ignorance — like what this Facebook user in support of Hershey's school decision, who wrote:

"Good job MHS for protecting the thousands of kids that could potentially be infected. Sacrifice one save thousands I think that is a pretty god moto."

Whaaa? HOW is this stopping THOUSANDS of kids form being infected?

There is NO WAY a student can pass the virus by sitting next to someone in class!

If you feel like AIDS discrimination and ignorance is a real problem please write a letter.

Boy With HIV Denied Entry Into Private School

Awful.

A 13-year-old boy was denied by the Milton Hershey School, a boarding school in Hersey, PA because he was HIV-positive.

The school claims that the boy was too much of a "threat" because of a fear of unprotected sexual activity.

What?!?

Meanwhile, the boy, who remains anonymous because of his age, says:

"I thought I would get into the school, because of the type of student and person I am. My life has turned into fear, anger, confusion and tears.

I don't see the direct threat. In my home we respect what my mother tells us to do. … We come straight home from school, do homework, chores and do things as a family unit. Isn't that what Milton Hershey school is supposed to be about, but with a great educational environment? I guess not?!"

So sad.

Thankfully, the AIDS Law Project has gotten involved and has filed a lawsuit on his behalf, alleging that the school violated the Americans with Disabilities Act. His lawyer adds:

"This young man is a motivated, intelligent kid who poses no health risk to other students, but is being denied an educational opportunity because of ignorance and fear about HIV and AIDS."

The school, so far, is not backing down. Watch what the school's principal has to say (above).

Terrible. We hope this boy gets justice.
