|On Sunday, October 4, we joined 25,000 individuals and advocacy organizations for the UNITE to Face Addiction Rally on the National Mall in Washington D.C. It was a powerful, historic gathering that brought together people, communities and organizations to face addiction and stand up for recovery.|

Through this first-of-its-kind event, we were able to collect signatures in support of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act, (S.524/H.R.953)legislation that would increase addiction prevention, treatment and recovery services. We also asked members of the crowd to share their personal stories and took photos of their written responses, as part of our #howmanyfamiliesphoto campaign.
Thank you for your ongoing support and stay tuned for more updates from the Partnership’s advocacy team. Together, we are working to end addiction in America.
