Have you ever taken steps to support a cause that’s near and dear to your heart? Have you ever used your own platform to raise awareness of a societal issue that can’t fix itself? If you answered "yes" to either of those questions or have taken very similar steps, there’s a good chance you’ve participated in advocacy. Rather, you’ve been an advocate.
OhioCAN advocates for the causes we serve, which are outlined in our Mission. We work to assist those impacted by substance use, who are being negatively affected by institutional systems through various means of supporting, pleading, defending, and personal testimonies.
We testified and were present for the signing of the Good Samaritan Bill. We testified on behalf of the Medicaid Expansion Extension bill and Naloxone.
