Reflecting on 2018
Dear L.E.A.D. Family and Friends,
I want to thank all of you for your support of L.E.A.D. and your dedication to preventing drug use and eliminating violence and bullying. We are making progress but much remains to be done. We still need your help. Nationwide, last year, we lost over 72,000 of our friends, family members, and neighbors to the drug and opioid epidemic. In the Tri-State area we lost over 10,000 people. In New Jersey, the CDC reports, drug overdose deaths are up 42.3%.
As we address this epidemic, L.E.A.D. continues to provide police officers and teachers an evidence based, tested and proven effective, K-12 anti-drug/anti-violence curriculum. Our L.E.A.D. officers now teach the largest, and only, evidence based, tested and proven effective, K-12 anti-drug/anti-violence curriculum delivered by law enforcement in the United States. Our combined efforts are making a difference!
As we enter 2019 please consider donating and showing your support in any way you can. We would not be able to achieve our vision of creating safer and healthier communities free of drugs, bullying and violence without you.
