In a previous post, the Faces and Voices of Recovery website was introduced here.
Although not connected with AA, this organization uses the voices of those of us in recovery to promote understanding that long-term recovery is a reality. Through activities and organization, Faces wants to build the capacity of the recovery community to address public policy.
Through their activities, the hope is to reduce discrimination that keeps people from seeking recovery or moving on to better lives. Further, once we have got recovery there needs to be support for recovery-oriented policies and programs.
