Join Us for ASAM's 10th Annual Legislative Day!

October 5, 2015, from 7:30 am - 4:00 pm

  

 

On Monday, October 5th, ASAM will host its 10th Annual Legislative Day on Capitol Hill. Legislative Day is an opportunity for ASAM members to meet with their Congressional representatives to discuss ASAM's priorities, share concerns and offer their expertise on issues related to drug and addiction treatment.

This year's Legislative Day is being coordinated with the campaign UNITE to Face Addiction. UNITE to Face Addiction is a grassroots mobilization of individuals, communities and organizations coming together to face addiction and stand up for recovery. On Sunday, October 4th, UNITE will be hosting a rally on the National Mall to voice support for solutions to addiction and the harms of alcohol and other drug use that are based on science and compassion, not stigma and shame.

On the following Monday, UNITE will organize an advocacy day on Capitol Hill to let our nation's leaders know that addiction is preventable and treatable, that far too many of those affected are incarcerated and that people do recover. As a partner organization, ASAM will join UNITE for our Legislative Day on October 5th.
