Abstract: Social Movements that have had an impact on the health and well-being of people living with HIV/AIDS (PWHAs), such as AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP!), have not been as active as they once were during the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. However, some left their mark on the discourse surrounding HIV/AIDS by laying the groundwork for non-profit organizations to continue the important work of making health services for PWHAs accessible. This assist to access is in danger of being compromised, as we've recently seen services for PWHAs fall in Santa Barbara, California. I posit that this decline in support for PWHAs has a relationship with the methods of advocacy deployed by HIV/AIDS non-profit organizations (HANPOs). Some literature revolves around the relationship that exists between non-profits that advocate for PWHAs and the social movement organization ACT UP! (Armstrong 2002; Brown et al. 2004; Chabré 1991, 1995, 1997, 1999; Chavesc 2004, LeBlanc et al. 1998; Kessler 1986; Moseley, Melton, and Francisco 2008; Mor et al. 1994; Neumayr, Schneider, and Meyer 2015; Salamon 1987). This thesis will explore the relationship between the social movement organization ACT UP and the state by building from existing literature on the social movement's strategies for garnering attention for PWHAs and analyzing interviews collected from the ACT UP Oral History Project (2002-2015). To analyze a sample of these interviews (n=40), I will use conversation analysis and grounded theory coding to analyze the interactional level contexts of social movement organizers to examine organizers' perceptions of the state and investigate how past action could help bridge existing and future gaps within HIV/AIDS community care.

Abstract: Despite the abundance of research in the field of agenda setting, particularly the recent emphasis on how news media agendas are constructed, issue advocacy advertising has received little attention as a potential influence on either the media or the public’s agenda. This is surprising, given the very nature of issue advocacy campaigns involves the communication of often-controversial opinions in an effort to sway public sentiment or generate support. This study expands the intermedia agenda setting literature by examining the agenda setting function of issue advocacy campaigns. Specifically, the study focused on an issue advertising campaign by the coal industry and its impact on television news coverage. The study provides initial evidence that issue advertising may play an important role in shaping the media’s agenda. While the correlation between issue advertising at time 1 and the television news agenda at time 2 was moderately strong (+.536), the Spearman correlation coefficient between these time periods exceeded the Rozelle-Campbell baseline statistic, suggesting a potentially dynamic relationship between issue advertising and the television news agenda.
