A&E 2009 Recovery Delegate Program
Faces & Voices is excited to join with A&E Network, NCADD, Partnership for a Drug-Free America, National Association of State Alcohol & Drug Abuse Directors and the Recovery Month Planning Partners in the Second Annual Recovery Delegate Program. Delegates will be honored at the September 12, 2009 Recovery Rally in New York City.
Applicants must have at least 10 years of recovery and be active in their local recovery community. You can apply at www.therecoveryproject.com/delegates.
The deadline for applications is May 15, 2009.
Last year, A&E created the Recovery Delegate Program to bring national attention to recovery by honoring individuals in long-term recovery from each state and the District of Columbia. A&E and their partners worked to secure hundreds of applications from across the country. The Delegates joined over 5000 people on the Brooklyn Bridge, forming a human bridge of recovery.
Each delegate will:
- Receive complimentary airfare and hotel in New York City from September 11-13, 2009
- Lead the procession of thousands across the historic Brooklyn Bridge
- Have their recovery story highlighted and shared with local/national media
We are working to help expand the Recovery Delegate Program and increase awareness about recovery across the country. We encourage you to apply online for the chance to represent your state at this year’s Recovery Rally in New York City on September 12, 2009.
