A-list celebrities are among the thousands expected to partake in the UNITE to Face Addiction Rally, taking place in Washington D.C. on October 4.
Facing Addiction, the organization behind the rally, announced that Sheryl Crow and Steven Tyler will be performing at the event, along with Joe Walsh from The Eagles, The Fray, and other bands.
The announement of the event line-up will aimed to spark more interest in the rally, which aims to break the silence around addiction issues.
“UNITE to Face Addiction will mark the first time our nation will collectively stand up to addiction, a health problem that impacts 1 in 3 households,” said Greg Williams, co-founder of Facing Addiction and a person in long-term recovery. “Twenty-two million Americans are currently suffering from a substance use disorder, and more than 23 million others are living in recovery. When you include the families of the afflicted, addiction impacts over 85 million people – we all know somebody. It’s not ‘those’ people, it’s all of us.”
The event will take place on the National Mall on October 4. For more information or to donate, visit www.facingaddiction.org.
