Drug Epidemic Requires Integrity, Community, Equality

Sunday, March 18, 2018
1:30 pm3:30 pm
Bealeton Library Depot (Bealeton, VA)

Over 80% of America’s recent increase in mass incarceration are individuals with substance use disorders. Taxpayers are spending billions of dollars annually on criminal justice and emergency costs related to drug and alcohol use but only a small fraction of that amount on successful outpatient treatment and continued recovery support. On Sunday, March 18, 1:30 pm at the Bealeton Library Depot, Fauquier Friends Worship Group will show the video “The Anonymous People” and learn of ways the traditional Quaker Testimonies on Integrity, Community and Equality can help address this concern. All are welcome to attend and join in the discussion at 10877 Willow Drive North, Bealeton. Email or find us on Facebook.
