Legal advocacy opportunities

Use your lived experience to create change

The state and federal governments often make policy decisions with little input from those in recovery. Because of its roots in stigma and the criminal justice system, systemic inequities and discrimination have become laws and regulations.

These injustices happen because there aren’t enough voices from those with lived experience speaking into these policies.

As you are comfortable, we encourage you to lend us your voice and share your experience, strength, and hope.

We understand the risks of coming forward and respect the traditions to protect a person’s anonymity. Here is a brochure from the Faces & Voices of Recovery that can guide you through some of those considerations.

If you have lived experience with substance use disorder, consider sharing your story! You have the power to inspire others and change lives.
