Surrender Dorothy

Surrender Dorothy (taking its campy name from the warning that the Wicked Witch of the West writes in the sky in The Wizard of Oz) is a group of ACT UPers that has been protesting New York City Health Commissioner Stephen Joseph at his office and at places on his schedule. ACT UP is targeting Commissioner Joseph because they believe he is artificially keeping the estimate of New Yorkers with AIDS low to make it look like New York City is doing a better job on AIDS than it is.
