Department of Justice to Launch Inaugural National Heroin and Opioid Awareness Week

Department of Justice to Launch Inaugural National Heroin and Opioid Awareness Week

Attorney General Lynch will Travel to Lexington, Kentucky as Part of the Justice Department’s Awareness Campaign to Address the Rising Public Health Crisis of Drug Addiction

The Obama Administration is announcing a “week of action” to raise awareness about the rising public health crisis caused by drug overdoses. As part of this effort, the Department of Justice designated the week of Sept.18-23, 2016, as National Heroin and Opioid Awareness Week. Senior Department of Justice officials, members of the President’s Cabinet and other federal agencies will hold events focused on the work being done to address the national prescription opioid and heroin epidemic.

Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch will travel to Lexington, Kentucky on TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2016, to hold a youth town hall at a local high school; meet with parents who have lost their children due to overdoses and now belong to the Heroin Education Action Team (H.E.A.T.); and deliver a policy speech regarding the actions and resources the Justice Department is bringing to bear on this issue.

“The heroin and opioid epidemic is one of the most urgent law enforcement and public health challenges facing our country,” said Attorney General Lynch. “Through National Heroin and Opioid Awareness Week, the Department of Justice seeks to raise awareness and prevent new victims from succumbing to addiction; to highlight the department’s ongoing commitment to holding accountable traffickers and others responsible for this epidemic; and to help provide treatment to those grappling with addiction. To be successful in this important endeavor, we need the help of all our federal, tribal, state and local partners. In the months ahead, we will continue working to erase this scourge from our communities and to ensure a brighter future for all Americans.”

9/11/16 – John T. Williams Memorial Crosswalk

john-t-williams
In conjunction with the Seattle Police Department (SPD), Seattle’s Department of Neighborhoods, Seattle Indian Health Board and the SPD’s Native American Police Advisory Council we invite all media outlets and the community to attend a ground breaking ceremony for a new community crosswalk on the corner of Boren & Howell on Sunday, September 11th at 8 – 9 a.m.

The crosswalk will be in honor of and in the memory of John T. Williams. The crosswalk groundbreaking shall include a cleansing ceremony, the story behind the crosswalk and an opportunity for the press to ask questions of the organizers. The planned crosswalk depicts a Nuu-chah-nulth story about the White Deer. The story of the White Deer shall be read and available in written form for people at the event. Members from the above host organizations and the family of John T. Williams shall be available to answer your questions about the project. Light snacks and coffee will be provided.

We hope that the crosswalk helps people remember the life of John T. Williams, a Nuu-chah-nulth woodcarver. We also hope that the crosswalk also continues the subsequent work done by the Seattle Police Department, the Department of Justice and several members of the American Indian Community to foster positive changes throughout all communities within the City of Seattle and the Seattle Police Department.
