National Issues Discussion: Opioid Epidemic

CCDCC Opioid Epidemic

National Issues Forums (NIF) is a nonpartisan, nationwide network of locally sponsored public forums for the consideration of public policy issues. It is rooted in the simple notion that people need to come together to reason and talk to deliberate about common problems.

This National Issues Forum will present three options relating to the question: What Should We Do About the Opioid Epidemic? for deliberation. Each option is based on differing views about what we hold most valuable. Each represents a general direction and suggests a number of actions that can be carried out by different people or groups.

Check out a copy of the guidebook from the Library in advance, and come ready to discuss! Community Mediation Center of Calvert County will be facilitating the discussion. Calvert Library in partnership with Calvert Alliance Against Substance Abuse, Calvert County Behavioral Health Services, Andrew Rappaport Calvert County State's Attorney, and others.
This is a Choose Civility Southern Maryland event.

2/23/2019 | 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM | Calvert Library Prince Frederick

Calvert County Democrats have worked hard to get the word out about Democratic principles and Candidates in this year's election, and even with the election behind us we still have a lot of work to do.

There will be tents, booths, and tables at major County functions. We will need staff to help us get the word out that we’re here, and continue to build on this year’s momentum. Staff at these events will be talking to passersby, handing out some information, and promoting Democratic values. Keep an eye on this page for events as they are scheduled! 

We also have several staffing positions that need to be filled. We need people to staff the office at Democratic Headquarters. Duties include getting the mail, answering phone and email messages, and keeping our records up to date. This is a great way to stay up on all the party news and events throughout the year. If you can give a few hours each week, please contact us today!
