2018 FED UP! Washington D.C. Events @ Washington D.C.
Oct 6 @ 3:00 pm – Oct 7 @ 8:30 pm

We’re FED UP! and we’re calling for immediate,  comprehensive and sustained Federal action to end the epidemic of opioid related addiction and overdose deaths.

Join us for three events in Washington D.C. over Columbus Day weekend.  Immerse yourself in various art forms connected to our opioid epidemic at our ARTful Advocacy event in the evening on 10/6.  The next morning, we’ll demonstrate in front of the Sackler Gallery on the National Mall in protest of the family that has become wealthy from the sale of their killer drug, OxyContin.

Join us in the afternoon on 10/7 for the biggest rally of its kind in 2018 where thousands of Americans will be demanding action, not just words, from our Federal government to end our nation’s opioid epidemic.  Network with others battling for lives in this space and participate in an evening vigil to remember and celebrate our lost loved ones.  We’ll all end the evening with our Opioid March to the White House and a call-to-action closing.

Register for all three events by visiting:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/national-fed-up-rally-and-artful-advocacy-event-registration-46091417671
