     We are asking you to join us on Feb 4th, 2014 for a Statewide Recovery Rally in Albany. F.I.S.T., LIRA & LICADD are coordinating this trip to Albany. The Rally is being put on by FOR-NY (Friends of Recovery). The day is split up into two parts. First we will all meet at the Emmanuel Baptist Church in Albany at 10:00 a.m. From 10-12:30 there will be a lineup of speakers. At 1:00 p.m we will all march over to speak to our legislators about improving access to care and recovery supports. At 3:00 we will board the bus to return. See flier on events page. We need you !!! We can no longer accept status quo. How many more have to die before we have our voices be heard. There will be groups from all around New York State attending this rally. Take your anger, frustration and dissapointment and turn it into action. JOIN US "What we cant do alone we can do together"

     Lastly we have been having petitions signed to present at the rally. Please visit our events page and download. Help us get as many signatures as possible. We are in the midst of an epidemic that is ruining our children, families and communities.

These are some folks that have lost a loved one to this illness. Please keep them in your prayers. Check out some of the photos from our June 7th event. Click on Photos
