Priorities & Initiatives Light & Unite RED

Light & Unite RED 

Light & Unite RED is coordinated by Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division and supported by nearly 50 community organizations, surrounding health departments, high schools, libraries, and government entities to shine a spotlight on the dangers of substance use and unite our community to engage in prevention, encourage treatment and support recovery throughout the year.

Why RED? It's the color of substance abuse awareness.
