The Ohio Mayors Alliance is a proud member of the Ohio Opioid Education Alliance (OOEA), partnering with dozens of other organizations including government, business, and nonprofits, to spread the “Don’t Live In Denial, Ohio” message. Under the leadership of the Nationwide Foundation, our mayors are helping to prevent the next generation from abusing opioids. The campaign encourages parents and caregivers to discuss the dangers of prescription painkillers with their children and dispose of unused opioids and painkillers in their homes.
Our mayors are hosting community meetings in their cities to discuss the campaign with stakeholders, including first responders, foundations, and local nonprofits. The OOEA is working to expand from a central Ohio focused campaign to a statewide campaign.
