"I want to thank Senator Tammy Baldwin for her courage in leading our state and nation through this addiction crisis. We are so grateful for Tammy's support and for inviting our team to be a part of her round table discussions and supporting our prevention work. For me, as a woman in long-term recovery, I am so grateful to have an unbelievable woman leader to look up to. We know how personal this is to Tammy and we see how she is changing the world through her vulnerability in sharing her story.
