TAKE ACTION: Urge Minn. lawmakers to fight for secular recovery!

FFRF Action Fund is calling for your support! 

Two important bills will be heard tomorrow, March 13, in the Minnesota Legislature that aim to provide secular options for individuals struggling with substance use issues. These are great bills that need your support to keep moving. Please act now — and help those in need of addiction recovery services!

House File 3486 will be heard at 1 p.m. tomorrow in the House Committee on Human Services Policy, and Senate File 3459 will be heard at 3 p.m. in the Senate Committee on Human Services. These bills, known as the Minnesota Recovery Options Act, will ensure that all individuals who are mandated to attend recovery support programs are provided with secular options. While secular support groups are available, most individuals are unaware of their existence, and instead are funneled into faith-based 12-step model programs. These faith-based programs simply do not resonate with many people. We must do all we can to ensure that all individuals undergoing substance use treatment are given every chance to succeed.

These two bills are important to protect the rights of all Minnesotans. Please don’t wait to take action! Reach out to members of the committees that are hearing these bills and ask them to make these measures into law. We encourage advocacy both via phone and email. The provided talking points can be customized to your liking. For best results, please be succinct and polite.
