#EndOverdoseNowIL is our moment to remember the lives lost to drug deaths, uplift the voices of those impacted, create awareness about the overdose crisis, and educate the public and lawmakers about lifesaving solutions. Join us for our rally and resource fair on August 28th from 3-7 PM at Federal Plaza, 230 S. Dearborn, Chicago.
Every overdose death is a drug policy failure. 10+ ILLINOISANS die daily. 4,000 annually.
How many more have to die for lawmakers to take action? The lack of political willpower to support common sense, scientific solutions is putting human lives at risk.
We are rallying to call for urgent action:
Embrace harm reduction as health. Legalize overdose prevention sites.
End the failed War on Drugs. Support. Don’t Punish.
Increase paths to care.
Empower community peer-led organizations to do what they do best, build trust, and save lives.
Illinois leaders must center on the root causes of overdose and bring hope to those at risk.
