ONE THOUSAND of you joined the movement!


We joined the #NOSHAME Movement!

In May we invited you to join us in the SAFE Project’s No Shame Movement by committing to combat the negative perception of addiction and help us reduce the impact of stigma by signing the #NoShame pledge.

Through our partnership with other like-minded organizations, we were reached over 100,000 people across the U.S. with our message with well over 1000 taking the pledge. To those who joined us in the #NoShame Movement – we appreciate you and your pursuit to end stigma. Click here to see who took the pledge on behalf of the Jamie Daniels Foundation.
