What role does the philanthropic sector play in engaging local and state government to address the substance use disorder crisis?

For philanthropy to have a tremendous impact in addressing the tragic substance use disorder crisis, new approaches to public policy and government partner engagement must be coordinated.  Find out how philanthropy, nonprofit associations and elected officials are uniquely positioned to collaborate and advance public policies related to substance and opioid use disorders.

This is the final webinar of the Substance Use Disorder Crisis Webinar Series hosted by Philanthropy Ohio, Indiana Philanthropy Alliance, Philanthropy West Virginia and the Council of Michigan Foundations.

By participating in this program, you will:

  • Learn from peer leaders doing work across multiple states;
  • Find opportunities for you to engage your local and state government representatives and implement strategies in your public policy agenda; and
  • Expand your network of peers who are working on this critical issue area.
