National Coalition Against Prescription Drug Abuse (NCAPDA)

This is a call out to every American who has been impacted directly and indirectly by our nation's out of control opioid addiction and overdose epidemic - and that is everyone! Stand beside us as we rally to demand a deeper level of action by our Federal agencies to save lives. We are FED UP! with the senseless loss of our loved ones to this public health crisis. We need action, not just words.

Includes: Networking - Advocacy - Education - Lost Loved Ones Vigil - March to the White House

Register also for our 1st ever 'ARTful Advocacy' event the evening before the rally where we'll address America's opioid problem through a unique showing of various forms of art, including film, music, fine art, dance and more. Questions can be directed to April Rovero at arovero@feduprally.org.
