BENEFITING: FELLOWSHIP LIVING FACILITIES INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 04, 2015
Addiction can longer be ignored. The time has come to break the silence.
On October 4, 2015 a transformative event will take place in Washington, DC that will ignite and grow an emerging national grassroots movement to solve the addiction crisis. In communities across the country, citizens are organizing and speaking out—about criminal justice reform, addiction recovery, health equity and deadly overdoses.
The time has come to UNITE to Face Addiction at a national rally that will transform the conversation from problems to solutions for one of the most pressing health issues of our time. UNITE to Face Addiction is a grassroots advocacy initiative bringing together people, communities, and organizations working on solutions to the addiction crisis. We are mobilizing to let our nation know that addiction is preventable and treatable, that far too many of those affected have been incarcerated, and that people can and do get well.
Help the Fellowship Foundation and Young People in Recovery (YPR) mobilize our community to attend this event on October 4th. We need your help to send our group the rally. Your money will contribute to costs of traveling to D.C. so that we may join the tens of thousands of citizens gathering in the nation's capital to speak with one voice.
We ask that you donate so that Fellowship Foundation and YPR may stand in solidarity with our fellows as a collective force to help the 22 million Americans with addiction, and urgently act to save the 350 lives lost each day. For more information about the events taking place in Washington on Oct. 4th please visit www.facingaddiction.org.
Help us reach our goal so that Fellowship Foundation and YPR can go to D.C. and #UNITEtoFaceAddiction.
