Who we are: We are a group of everyday, small-town Hoosiers who live close to the Ohio River in Floyd, Clark, and Scott Counties. We are people who use drugs, people in recovery, and people of faith who are committed to ending the overdose crisis and the failed war on drugs. We envision a state where ALL Hoosiers, regardless of race, faith, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, or life choices, have the opportunity to thrive.
What we do: Our chapter leads Hoosier Action’s justice work. We work at the federal, state, and local level to figure out how we can end the overdose crisis and stop the failed war on drugs. We have helped line-up Indiana co-sponsorship for the bipartisan MAT Act, a federal bill which would increase access to vital medicine for rural and small town Hoosiers in recovery. At the state level, we’ve fighting the bail industry, so we can end predatory cash bail and keep Hoosier families together. At the local level, we are working to increase access to naloxone/narcan and to implement other harm reduction policies, such as syringe service programs to save lives.
Where we work: Although we are rooted in Floyd, Clark, and Scott counties, we welcome anyone who wants to work on these issues across the state. We are the ones who will build towards a better, more beautiful and free Indiana and we want YOU to join us if you have that same vision!
