Louisville Cares: A Call for Community Investment to Save Lives and Heal Louisville

In 2023, the United States had another record breaking year of overdose deaths. Our city continues to be plagued by overdose deaths, along with a myriad of other health and community crises. While no community has been left untouched, Black Louisvillians have been dramatically impacted at a disproportionate rate.

While nothing can immediately reverse this tragedy, there is much more the Louisville Metro Government could do to save lives, address community concerns and improve our city as a whole. Louisville could be a leader in turning the tide on these issues and example for other cities by investing in the Louisville Cares demands.
