That’s how much money is coming into the State of North Carolina over the next 18 years.
WHY? Because of a settlement with pharmaceutical companies due to opioid misuse.
WHAT does that have to do with me or my church? And what can we do?
United Methodist Churches can make a difference! Join us Thursday, February 24, for a Lunch and Learn to find out what role faith communities can play in assuring the funds are distributed with integrity and accountability. The webinar will focus on why we as people should care about this settlement and what it could mean for the communities we serve. We’ll learn more about the background of the opioid settlement, what the Memorandum of Agreement is about, and most importantly, ways congregations can get involved in advocating for the spending of this money in our state.
