Advocacy

Alliance advocacy efforts are focused and influence decisions within political, economic, social systems and institutions. Alliance advocacy incorporates many components including but not limited to a definitive presence at the Louisiana State Capitol, adoption and communication of legislative priorities, conducting and communicating impact analysis on proposed state and federal regulations. 

 

 

End the Epidemic Louisiana

End the Epidemic LA is a joint outreach effort between the Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry’s office and the Louisiana Ambulance Alliance that is designed to combat opioid abuse in Louisiana. In addition, the End the Epidemic LA network aims to support local communities and local coalition efforts to address the opioid epidemic in rural Louisiana.

Through collaboration, communication, and coordinated efforts, the six organizations represented by the ETELA Governing Board hope to leverage federal, state, and local resources to ensure that every citizen of Louisiana has access to the help and support they may need to fight opioid addiction.

The End the Epidemic LA Governing Board consists of the following organizations: 

 Office of the Attorney General

 Louisiana Ambulance Alliance

 Pafford EMS

 Louisiana Association for Behavioral Health

 Jackson Parish Ambulance Services District

 Louisiana Department of Health State Office of Rural Health
