Are you FED UP with the continued loss of life from heroin and prescription painkillers in this country?  Have you wondered why our federal government has been entirely ineffective at putting an end to the skyrocketing addiction rate from these drugs?  If so, then we need you in Washington on September 28th.  The FED UP! Rally is a call for immediate, coordinated and comprehensive federal action to end the epidemic of addiction and overdose deaths attributed to opioids (including heroin) and other prescription drugs.  Join our grassroots movement along with families and major advocate organizations from across the country!  With ONE VOICE we will be heard and get action for change!
