About Mobilize recovery

Mobilize Recovery is an initiative of the Recovery Advocacy Project and The Voices Project. Its mission is to expand policy to support recovery, create connections to supportive services that are vital and life-saving, and to engage affected individuals in meaningful civic action. The initiative convenes advocates with lived experience to build capacity for organized civic engagement with new leadership across the country.

Each year, hundreds of recovery advocates are selected to attend Mobilize Recovery to learn innovative strategies and tactics for grassroots organizing. You’ll connect with other recovery leaders and gain access to new tools to streamline your organizing and advocacy work.

Mobilizing Grassroots

All movements consist of robust constituencies of grassroots supporters. You'll learn from leading community organizers so you can organize and mobilize for change.

Organizing Tactics

Do you ever wonder where to start? Do you know how to organize a strategic initiative from planning through execution? Hear from experts about the many successful tactics that make up winning strategies.

Workshops & Collaboration

You'll work closely with a small cohort of other Mobilizers from all areas of experience and backgrounds. Small workshops give attendees a safe environment to learn. We believe the diversity of our movement makes us more resilient.

Digital Strategy

Take your advocacy digital to win the hearts and minds of new advocates, stakeholders, and key decision-makers. Expand your digital toolkit from communication and social media to design and data.

The Mobilize 2021 Experience

Mobilize. Organize. Energize.

Mobilize Recovery 2021 was the third annual conference for recovery advocates across the United States. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the national advocacy event was a hybrid event, making it the largest and most accessible training to date. Over 300 advocates attended in person, while nearly 1,000 participants logged in to network, share skills, and cultivate community. The conference was hosted by the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino and supported by Nevada’s public health department, ensuring that participants would stay healthy and safe.

Over 300 advocates attended in person, while nearly 1,000 participants logged in to network, share skills, and cultivate community. The conference was hosted by the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino and supported by Nevada’s public health department, ensuring that participants would stay healthy and safe. 

The Voices Project/Recovery Advocacy Project initiative was supported by Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Serve You RX, the Levenson Foundation, Ascend Video, and Callahan & Blaine and supported by our partners the Recovery Advocacy Project, Sandgaard Foundation, National Council for Behavioral Health, Truth Initiative, Young People in Recovery, McShin Recovery Resource Foundation, Well Being Trust, Faces & Voices of Recovery, Shatterproof, Opioid Response Network, Herren Project, The Phoenix, She Recovers, National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers, CCAPP, AHRE, Victoria’s Voice, Partnership to End Addiction, Foundation for Recovery, and the Kennedy Forum.

The conference included a two-day training in public narrative, led by storytelling coaches and based on the work of Marshall Ganz at Harvard University. Participants worked with coaches to learn to tell their stories in compelling, persuasive ways to help change the narrative around addiction and recovery. Other training helped advocates gain skills in community building, relational organizing, creating culturally responsive recovery support services, and including families in recovery support. Advocates led panels about unpacking and dismantling racism in recovery spaces, as well as developing cultural humility in delivering services to the LGBTQIA+ community. The power of inclusive recovery spaces was a central theme of Mobilize, as participants were challenged to consider recovery from an intersectional lens and fill the gaps to support our most marginalized and historically excluded community members.

 “Three years into Mobilize, we are stronger than ever,” said Ryan Hampton, founder of the Voices Project. “In spite of a pandemic, in spite of the challenges front-line advocates face in their own communities, it’s incredibly meaningful that we can come together and renew our commitment to building equity in the recovery space. This movement is for everyone, and as we grow, we’re making sure that everybody feels like they have a seat at the table.”

The hybrid event was popular and accessible, with high engagement between participants. Mobilize Recovery 2021 built on its successful platform by bringing people together to celebrate our wins, honor our struggles, and plan for our collective future.
