On September 10, the American Conservative Union Foundation's (ACUF's) Family Prosperity Initiative (FPI) and the new Granite Institute will co-host a major forum on the heroin epidemic in New Hampshire.  The "Heroin Crisis Leadership Summit" will feature national speakers, local law-enforcement officials, policymakers, scholars, and treatment experts.

ACUF's FPI puts together the Family Prosperity Index, which uses data to rank the states according to how well they facilitate an atmosphere for families to thrive.

In the inaugural 2016 Index, New Hampshire ranked No. 22 in the nation.  "However, the state ranks 45th in the nation in family health," according to a report on the Index, "based in large part due to its high overdose rate -- the third worst in the country," based on 2014 data.

The Index will be discussed in detail at the forum.  The event, which is open to the public, will take place on Saturday the 10th from 2:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord.  Admission is free.  Registration is available online.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports ACUF's FPI.
