New York Recovery Advocacy Project Town Hall
Start: 2020-05-13 19:00:00 UTC Eastern Daylight Time (US & Canada) (GMT-04:00)
This is a virtual event
The New York Recovery Advocacy Project (NY-RAP) will be hosting its first virtual town hall on May 13th. Due to the critical nature of the COVID-19 pandemic in New York, and its effect on our community, we urge members of the recovery community statewide to participate in this discussion. Among the matters that will be discussed will be updates on the Purdue Pharma opioid lawsuit and bankruptcy case. It is vital that the money that is being offered in reparations for what has happened is being used to support our community’s needs. This is why WE NEED YOU!
The Recovery Advocacy Project (RAP) is a robust network of people and organizations across our country advocating for addiction recovery policies and political platforms. RAP is committed to giving people in recovery, family members, and supporters of recovery the grassroots organizing tools so together we can advance recovery in our communities. RAP is working to build a visible and effective constituency in demand of community and public policy-based solutions in response to our country’s long-standing addiction crisis. The current COVID-19 health crisis has presented a wide-range of challenges to people in and those seeking recovery from addiction and mental health disorders. As a resilient community, we must come together to focus on solutions and how we will get through this trying time together.
This conversation will impact the work that we all do to support New Yorkers in all stages of recovery.
*This event will be held live via zoom. Once you RSVP you will receive the meeting ID & dial-in instructions.
