Recovery Events, Advocacy, and Awareness Days

Local residents can participate in advocacy training in preparation for annual Lobby Days in Albany. We encourage volunteers to join us in carrying our message of prevention and recovery to our elected state officials. Our plans also include hosting legislative events on relevant and current issues as the need arises.
