URGENT CALL TO ACTION

#BillionsNotMillions

We must make sure all Attorneys General understand one fact – big pharma doesn’t owe several millions of dollars in restitution – they owe our cities & towns BILLIONS of dollars. Take a moment today and sign this letter to the National Association of Attorneys General demanding that these settlements do not fall short and are worth #BillionsNotMillions.

The epidemic is having a catastrophic impact on families and communities and is placing tremendous strain on our health care system, businesses, and local and state governments.

OUR MISSION: To use our united voices in a call for immediate, comprehensive and sustained Federal action to end the opioid addiction epidemic.

OUR VISION: A world where opioids are prescribed cautiously and those with opioid addiction have easy access to effective treatment and recovery services.

The FED UP! Coalition is working to find ways to:

  • Prevent our children, friends, and loved ones from becoming addicted to opioids.
  • Ensure that people suffering from opioid addiction have access to affordable, evidence-based treatment.
  • Support and enable recovery.
  • Eliminate opioid overdose deaths.
