Founded by Clinical Psychologist Sandy Snodgrass whose son Bruce was tragically killed by fentanyl poisoning in 2021.  In the time since, Sandy has dedicated herself to sharing her story as a means of increasing awareness and advocating for legislative action, as well as the importance of Naloxone Kit availability and training.

Sandy works regularly with the DEA, local government representatives, Senators, and the Alaska Governor.

In June of 2022, a bill titled “Bruce’s Law”, in honor of Sandy’s son was officially introduced to Congress by Alaska Senators Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan (as well as Senators Dianne Feinstein of California and Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire).

If passed, the bill would authorize a public education and awareness campaign focused on the dangers of drugs that could be contaminated with fentanyl and additional preventative measures relating to drug use and addiction.
