• We need your help with a donation today!

    We're committed to holding the manufacturers of the opioid crisis responsible and speaking for the hundreds of thousands of voices that have been silenced by the epidemic. We are protesting to legalize the solutions that help those with substance use disorder and those who sustain them.


    Your donation will go directly towards the organizing of future actions as we target Sackler-funded institutions while advocating for access to care and medication for drug users. Supporters help us to afford supplies and transportation, conduct research, and distribute educational materials. We intend to destigmatize substance use disorder while highlighting compassionate, evidence-based treatments.
