Sen. Baldwin brings “In Your Corner Tour” to Eau Claire

Senator Tammy Baldwin holds a roundtable discussion Tuesday in Eau Claire focusing on addiction crisis.

Baldwin met with recovery advocates along with people and family members impacted by addiction at the LE Phillips Memorial Public Library.

The senator says there’s a drug epidemic in Wisconsin. Baldwin says communities need to confront the stigma on public health issues including mental health and drug addiction. She says a lot still can be done at the national level including how to prevent contributing factors.

“As I travel the state, whether it’s rural, or suburban, or urban area, that the communities would like to see some of this federal money come directly and have flexibility to meet the need in each community” said Senator Tammy Baldwin.

Tuesday’s event is part of the senator’s “In Your Corner Tour” a week-long statewide swing to highlight issues in communities.
