Philadelphia, PA –(ENEWSPF)–July 25, 2016. Tonight, Hillary for America and the Democratic National Convention Committee will show that the American people are united together to take on some of our country’s most urgent challenges. Hillary Clinton’s career has been about putting families first, and the opioid epidemic is quietly tearing families apart in communities across the country.
Tonight’s Democratic National Convention Committee video “Combating Substance Abuse” shows Hillary Clinton’s steadfast commitment to preventing and treating addiction, supporting people in recovery, and taking on this epidemic once and for all. Her bold plans to tackle addiction and substance use disorders were informed by the early, small meetings in New Hampshire in 2015 where Granite Staters shared their personal stories about how they have been impacted by this disease. The video also features Pam Livengood from Keene, New Hampshire and one of tonight’s featured speakers.
Hillary Clinton believes that we are stronger together and, as she says in the video, that “everybody should feel that they are valued, they are cared about, and they have a president who sees them.”
