ACT UP/LA demonstrated at Frontera Women's Prison in November, 1990, demanding an infectious-diseases doctor and access to proper medications for HIV positive inmates. Because those demands were not met, ACT UP/LA went to Sacramento in May, 1991, to support prisoners with HIV/AIDS. The action involved civil disobedience. Shortly thereafter, an infectious-diseases doctor was assigned to Frontera. In June, 1992, and October, 1993, ACT UP/LA returned to Sacramento to demand improvements in the care of prisoners with HIV/AIDS. The October 1993 visit to the offices of the California Department of Corrections resulted in the arrest of one ACT UP/LA member.
