Faces of Hope

Good Afternoon- 

On behalf of Governor Christie, thank you for attending and helping to spread the word about “The Many Faces of Addiction: Ending the Stigma” summit. The summit brought together organizations, advocacy groups, medical professionals, families and individuals in recovery from across New Jersey and New York. The conversation that was started by Governor Christie, Pastor Carter of Newark’s New Hope Baptist Church and our panelists addressing the stigma surrounding addiction and recovery doesn’t have to stop here. 

  • We need people to continue to tell their story if we are going to change the stigma of addiction.   With many voices we can help change the way people struggling with addiction are viewed. We’re asking that you forward this email to all colleagues, organizations and individuals who are affected by this disease to spread the word. 


  • We’re asking people to tweet/post/share the video below on social media channels using the tag #BeAFace to enlighten those who will read their story. 


Change Minds.  Tell Your Story. #BeAFace.
