SB881 Defeated!

THANK YOU to everyone who helped advocate so quickly for this defeat of another attempt at a harmful drug induced homicide law that would have further criminalized addiction and deterred people from calling for help in an overdose!

We support a variety of local, state, and federal advocacy objectives that increase access to services, support, and rights of people in recovery and people who use drugs.  

Among other successes, our work has resulted in 6 Virginia laws that increase access to naloxone, strengthen protections for people calling for help during an overdose, expand access to comprehensive harm reduction programs, and created a naloxone access pilot project at Carillion hospital. 

If you would like to get involved in advocacy please email
