Together to end stigma

In 2021, 6,843 Californians died from drug overdoses. Thousands of Californians are struggling with substance use disorder (SUD). Stigma is hurting our family and friends as it keeps them from reaching out for help.

Unshame California is bringing our community together by shining a light on the stories of people impacted by SUD. Unshame California invites you to treat people without judgment, because no one should struggle alone.

Stories change communities. Communities create change.
