Opioid Settlement Funding Must Put Communities First
At the beginning of this year, four massive drug corporations were directed to pay billions for their role in fueling the overdose crisis – and $641 million will go to New Jersey. Please take action to ensure this settlement funding actually helps people access the recovery and harm reduction services we need and deserve.
Submit a letter to the NJ Department of Human Services (don’t worry, we’ve supplied an example below) with your suggestions on how this funding should be spent.
Overdose is preventable and if we want to see this money spent wisely, transparently, and successfully, we need to be involved to make sure no decisions about us are made without us.
PLEASE CHECK BACK REGULARLY FOR NEW ACTIONS
Together by sharing our stories and working together to win the solutions we need, we are powerful.
JOIN US IN OUR FIGHT
Now more than ever, we need to stand up and speak out in the name of those we have lost to preventable overdose deaths; and with loved ones who are still with us.
