Opioid Awareness Day on The Hill
As most of you already know our country is in the midst of a severe epidemic of opioid addiction and overdose deaths – acknowledged by the federal government as the worst drug epidemic in U.S. history. 91 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose (that includes prescription opioids and heroin). Here in Minnesota we are doing our best to lead the nation in creating solutions to end this epidemic. We are introducing new legislation that will improve the lives for individuals and families that have been affected by this epidemic.
This will be an all-day event including legislator visits, networking and education opportunities. The most impactful way for you to influence the polices that impact you and those you care about is by meeting in person with your legislators. This year we will only be visiting legislators if we have a pre-scheduled meeting for at least one constituent. If you want to visit your legislators as part of Opioid Awareness Day on The Hill, please register by following this link.
