Bloomington Addiction Treatment Agenda Pushed by Group

An organization in Bloomington introduced an addiction treatment agenda following its recently submitted petition to Sen. Joe Donnelly over concerns of U.S. Court of Appeals judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.

BLOOMINGDALE, Ind. - Sept. 19, 2018 - eTradeWire -- An organization in Bloomington introduced an addiction treatment agenda following its recently submitted petition to Sen. Joe Donnelly over fears of U.S. Court of Appeals judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.

The organization, Hoosier Action, feature multiple Bloomington residents who have gathered together to preserve a decent way of life. It fights for small-town rights by creating connections among families across Indiana.

"Hoosier Action was founded by community organizer Kate Hess Pace, whose family goes back five generations in Southern Indiana," said Jeff Greene, the media outreach coordinator of Hoosier Action. "Her goal was to create a vehicle for working class families to have their voices heard and for action to be taken to improve their lives. It is a direct response to witnessing despair, poverty and addiction in her own community and statewide."

Last week, Pace's team sent a petition to Donnelly in response to Kavanaugh's judicial nomination to fill the position previously held by Justice Anthony Kennedy.

"The petition opposing Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination was largely assembled in the week during his hearing from a combination of online signatures, phone banking and text banking," Greene said. "It covered 25 municipalities including Republican strongholds, which tells us that many Hoosiers are concerned despite party affiliation. It's encouraging to me that people are feeling a need to participate, but it also shows how much there is to do in Indiana to improve our collective lives."
