THE VIEWS OF SUPPORTERS, PARTICIPANTS, AND OR EVENT HOSTS OF NATIONAL FENTANYL PREVENTION AND AWARENESS DAY ARE NOT NECESSARILY THOSE OF FACING FENTANTYL. WE WELCOME ALL AFFECTED FAMILIES AND FENTANYL AWARENESS ORGANIZATIONS AND EDUCATORS TO WORK TOGETHER IN FINDING SOLUTIONS TO ILLICIT FENTANYL AND HELP TO SAVE LIVES.

Families Against Fentanyl

Our mission-To have illicitly manufactured fentanyl declared a weapon of mass destruction so that all the force, might and resources of our federal and state governments can be utilized to eliminate this most critical threat to our families, communities, and country. To raise public awareness that illicit fentanyl's toxicity and accessibility has created a national security issue, and to prevent mass casualties. To hold foreign governments responsible for their role in the U.S. fentanyl crisis and extract accountability for deaths involving illicitly manufactured fentanyl. To destigmatize substance-use, and promote harm reduction programs that support individuals and communities affected by fentanyl poisoning.

Watchdogs Against Perdue Pharma

The Blue Plaid Society

The Blue Plaid Society is 501 (3) non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and educating the public about illicit fentanyl, the drug that is killing our children and loved ones by lethal poisoning at a catastrophic rate. This drug does not discriminate against any group of American society. Victims include the unknowing one-time experimenter, recreational users, and those trapped in substance use disorder. All souls lost to this epidemic are important and we stand together as bereaved survivors and supporters to alert the public of the existence and danger of contaminated illicit drugs pouring into America; to educate society of the potency and lethality of these drugs; to exploit how they are distributed through unmonitored borders, US mail, social media and the dark web; to explain why these deaths are poisonings, not overdoses, and should be charged as homicides; and to foster an environment that encourages education and support as it relates the stigma and lack of understanding of the disease of addiction.

PARTNERSHIPS FOR SAFE MEDICINES

Criminals make billions of dollars creating and selling counterfeit drugs around the world, and those products make their way into the United States. They duplicate the exact packaging, look and taste of the real thing. They can be difficult to detect, but detecting them is important. Counterfeit drugs can be a death sentence for the patients who end up taking them. Fake drugs deny patients treatment that can alleviate suffering and save lives, promote drug resistant strains of disease and may cause dangerous or deadly reactions to undeclared drug ingredients.

Comprised of more than 45 non-profit organizations, The Partnership for Safe Medicines (PSM) is a public health group committed to the safety of prescription drugs and protecting consumers against counterfeit, substandard or otherwise unsafe medicines.

PSM follows a set of principles to support quality assurance programs and establish a drug distribution system that is without compromise. It is our hope that through these guidelines we can reduce the number of counterfeit drugs that defraud patients and deny them therapies that can alleviate suffering and save lives. Our principles include:

  • Unifying the fight against counterfeit drugs
  • Securing and protecting the pharmaceutical supply chain
  • Regulation of online sellers
Our members are dedicated to protecting the safety of American consumers by curbing the manufacturing and sale of dangerous counterfeit drugs. Our goal is for all consumers to be aware that counterfeit medicines do exist, they are not safe and together we can take action to avoid them.

PSM works with patient advocacy groups and consumer groups to raise awareness of counterfeit drugs within the United States and to teach patients and medical professionals how to buy medication safely and affordably without risking their lives by dealing with unlicensed, dangerous counterfeit medication sellers.

The Never Alone Nick Rucker Foundation

On April 23, 2021, in a small town in Bardstown, Kentucky. My 24-year-old son Nick was killed by 1/2 a counterfeit fentanyl Percocet. HALF of an ILLICIT COUNTERFEIT PERCOCET took Nick's life. Officially called accidental drug overdose by the state of KENTUCKY.. BUT my son Nick did NOT overdose he was poisoned to death by that half a pill. All alone and utterly clueless that would be his last act on earth. No warning, no knowledge he was about to consume fentanyl, no battle, and no choice. Nick never battled a substance use disorder but he is still DEAD. Nick did NOT OVERDOSE he was POISONED TO DEATH. Nick didn't choose Fentanyl, he was murdered, and the crime is called Drug-Induced Homicide. I could not save Nick from an unknown illicitly counterfeit pill because I didn't know they existed. Nick didn't know they existed. Nick doesn't get a chance or a choice... Nick is a beloved person and his life will be forever missed. Nick matters, and all those killed by illicit Fentanyl matter... It's not okay, you should be here...

We are Never Alone Nick

Fentanyl Is Killing Our Future! #JUSTICEFORTRAVISJAMESGUSTAVSON

On February 24th, 2021, our family lost a son, a brother, a grandson, a nephew, a cousin, and an uncle, in other words, a piece of our heart. Erin lost her boyfriend, and his brotherhood of friends lost a brother. Travis was 21 years old when a dealer gave him a drug laced with fentanyl. It took his life and took him away from us. We want to make sure that the dealer pays for what he did. We need to get these drugs out of our country. We also need to help others find information quickly, without shame, so maybe, just maybe, their child can live. We need to remove the stigma of this disease. We need to educate, not only the public, but doctors, health caregivers, teachers, pastors, hospitals, and on and on. Drugs can kill, but drugs laced with fentanyl DO kill. We just need to do something! NOW!!

Matthew's Voice

To achieve our mission, we give presentations at local high schools and teen organizations. We make this issue personal, giving teens and young adults a first-hand account of the consequences that can come from drug use. Our focus is on the fentanyl epidemic and the dangers of drug use in general. We emphasize the role social media plays by glamorizing drug use, as well as how it has increased the availability and distribution of various drugs to teenagers. In order to reach more young adults, we have teamed up with a professional videographer and voiceover actor to create a public service announcement to educate the public on the dangers of illicit fentanyl. In addition, we are working on implementing a fentanyl unit in middle and high schools across North Carolina. We have also created a national version that can be used in any state.
