Our Mission

The RISE Drug Free MKE coalition raises awareness of substance (mis)use, and, through inclusive education, elevates our entire community, from our youth to our elders, out of the harms caused by substance (mis)use.

    RISE Drug Free MKE fills a very key void throughout Milwaukee County, intentionally pulling together a diverse group of individuals from the public, private, and non-profit sectors in a unified effort to prevent and reduce substance use and misuse. I am proud of my involvement with RISE Drug Free MKE, am honored to have been selected by the membership to Chair the Coalition, and, due in large part to the depth and breadth of dedication and expertise of our partners, I am hopeful for our future.
