Facing Addiction, a new, national organization that will serve as a voice for the over 85 million Americans impacted by addiction, is proud to announce the “UNITE to Face Addiction” rally, a free event on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, October 4, 2015.

The rally will find Facing Addiction teaming with 450 other organizations from around the United States to draw attention to what its reps characterize as “America’s denial about the most urgent health crisis facing our nation today – addiction to alcohol and other drugs.” Along with the musical performances, the event will allow speakers from around the world to discuss addiction, and it will highlight celebrities’, politicians’ and other advocates’ viewpoints about the matter with an eye toward combating addiction in the U.S. The rally’s organizers have plans to announce more performers and special guests in the near future.

The event will feature musical performances by Joe Walsh, Steven Tyler with his Nashville-based band, Loving Mary, Sheryl Crow, Jason Isbell, The Fray, and John Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls; powerful, inspirational speakers from all walks of life who have been affected by addiction; and remarks by celebrities, elected officials and other advocates who will join together to change the conversation around, and bring new solutions to, the addiction crisis in America.

Other notable individuals who have already embraced and endorsed this event include Paul Williams, Congresswoman Mary Bono, Miss USA 2006 Tara Conner, Congressman Patrick Kennedy, Author & Activist Christopher Kennedy Lawford, Author & TV Host Pat O’Brien, Entrepreneur and Music Producer Russell Simmons, former Major League Baseball Star Darryl Strawberry, Best-Selling Author William Cope Moyers, Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld, Former Astronaut Steve Oswald and many more.
