faces of addiction and recovery quiltThis event is the fourth annual gathering to raise awareness of the local impacts of addiction and to bring light and support to families affected by addiction.

The three 2018 Wisconsin Faces of Addiction and Recovery Quilts will be on display, showing the names and faces of 577 people who have died because of addiction. Red squares indicate someone who is in active addiction, gray squares indicate someone is incarcerated for addiction, and white squares feature people who are in recovery, which shows hope and success!

Bev Kelley-Miller and Natalie Coenen, members of the ESTHER Prison Reform Task Force, will share their stories. Senator Tammy Baldwin will also attend to share her own family’s story about how the addiction crisis hits close to home and to highlight the efforts of event organizers in lighting the way and supporting families touched by the crisis.
