Welcome to Recovery Voices Count 2012! If you are interested in what it takes to organize the over 20 million Americans in long term recovery, our families, friends and allies to demonstrate their power on Election Day, then you’ve come to the right place. The Recovery Voices Count campaign is part of our ongoing work to build a powerful recovery advocacy movement by supporting nonpartisan civic engagement in local, state, and national elections.
The goal is simple: to support recovery community organizations and their communities in developing and sustaining a constituency of consequence – an organized voice of people in recovery who are educated on key issues, vote on Election Day, and hold elected officials accountable long after the polls close.
Faces & Voices launched the Recovery Voices Count campaign in 2008 to expand ongoing work to build a powerful advocacy movement of people in recovery, their family members, friends, and allies by supporting nonpartisan civic engagement in local, state, and national elections. We are partnering with allied organizations to host Recovery Wellness Rooms at the 2012 Republican and Democratic National Conventions.
For further information and assistance in putting together a Recovery Community Civic Engagement campaign in your city or town, or if you have content that you would like to contribute to this blog, please contact Faces & Voices at firstname.lastname@example.org.
