FED UP! Rally and #OpioidMarch 2018

Save the Date and start making plans to join us in Washington, D.C. for the 6th annual FED UP! Rally.

For almost a decade, the FED UP! Coalition has been unifying families, organizations, and allies from across our nation who’ve stood together in an alliance to end the opioid epidemic. With another year of increased deaths and the change of power in our federal government, this year we’re planning our 6th annual FED UP! Rally in Washington D.C. and another #OpioidMarch to bring awareness to the need for action now.

We’re FED UP! and we’re calling for immediate, coordinated and comprehensive federal action to end the epidemic of addiction and overdose deaths attributed to opioids. The FED UP! Coalition does not, and will never, collect funds from pharmaceutical companies or the trade organizations lobbying on their behalf.
