The opioid epidemic killed 64,000 people in the U.S. last year and is the #1 cause of death for Americans under 50. This is a public health emergency, but the government hasn't allocated any funding to solve the problem. Instead, Trump and Republicans continue trying to gut affordable health care programs like Medicaid, which is the largest funder of treatment and services that address the opioid epidemic.

It's time for real solutions.

The Opioid Network — a coalition of groups including the Center for Popular Democracy and its local affiliates in Indiana, Maryland, Ohio, Delaware, Vermont, and New Hampshire — is bringing the demands of people directly impacted by the opioid epidemic to the halls of Congress.

Join the Opioid Network on November 13 in Washington, D.C. to take direct action at congressional offices and demand real solutions to this epidemic:

1) Fund real treatment and public health services that address the opioid crisis.
2) Pass the Alexander-Murray health care proposal.
3) Save Medicaid, the biggest payer of opioid treatment + services!
