Protect Families First
Based in Providence, Rhode Island, Protect Families First is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that works to raise awareness about the human casualties of America's destructive war on drugs. We are an alliance of parents, young people, and community leaders who bear witness to that devastation and advocate for reforming our failed drug policies. For too long, the drug war has been fought in the name of "protecting young people" while families and neighborhoods have been crushed by punitive drug policies and destabilizing drug war violence. From the child refugee crisis at our border to the "New Jim Crow," the war on drugs is responsible for some of the most serious human rights crises of our time. We seek to educate policy makers and the general public about these important issues and galvanize broad support for reform.
