In the heart of Washington, D.C., a family stands united, actively battling fentanyl – a deadly adversary. Michelle Loberg, her husband Jeff, and their daughter Emily are fueled by resilience, advocacy, and unity. Their story begins with the tragic loss of a loved one to fentanyl.

Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid linked to national security, claims over 70,000 lives annually in the United States. April Babcock, a mother who lost her son Austen to a fentanyl overdose, founded the Lost Voices of Fentanyl movement, now comprising 30,000 members. The Washington, D.C. rally pleads for action from the Biden Administration and Congress.

The Drug Enforcement Administration seized 379 million doses of fentanyl in 2022, with over 90% originating in China. The Loberg family represents the role of law enforcement in this fight.

Michelle Loberg urges unity, stating, “United we stand…divided we fall.” Her journey showcases the power of one individual’s determination. Organizations like Fentanyl Free Communities offer hope for mitigating fentanyl’s devastating impact.

The Lost Voices of Fentanyl Rally sheds light on its hidden costs, reminding President Biden of the consequences of inaction.

The Lobergs are not just participants; they are champions of resilience and symbols of unity. They aim to raise $50,000 for the Fentanyl Free Communities Foundation to support victims and drive policy initiatives.

Their journey teaches us the power of individuals to effect change. The rally is a beacon of hope and a call to action for a nation in crisis.
