Sounds of Sarah Founder attends DEA National Family Summit

WASHINGTON – On September 25 and 26, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration hosted the second annual DEA Family Summit on Fentanyl for families from across the country who have experienced the profound loss of a child due to a drug poisoning. U.S. Attorney General Merrick B. Garland and DEA Administrator Anne Milgram delivered the opening remarks where the Attorney General announced $345 million in grants to combat fentanyl. Patty Stovall of Sounds of Sarah attended this event.

Drug poisoning deaths are killing Americans at a catastrophic and unprecedented rate. Last year, 110,757 lives were lost to a drug poisoning, with fentanyl and methamphetamine driving this record increase. Fentanyl and methamphetamine are more accessible and more widely available than ever before; anyone with a smart phone is a target of the drug cartels. DEA will stop at nothing to defeat the drug trafficking organizations flooding America with these poisons, the Sinaloa and Jalisco (CJNG) cartels. We also know that we must all work together to save lives and stop fentanyl. This crisis will take all of us working together to solve.
