Your ORC Association's History

May Just Help Get More Laws Passed

Tell us your story - Published on the Daily & the ORC Resource Center

Building Support and Involvement begins with knowing the histories and background of each ORC Association. With our 'Fight For 20' campaign to get the remaining 20 states to create and pass ORC legislation, we need to build the case for the legislators to be able to visit the ORC Resource Center and learn about the biggest and most indepth collabroative effort in the history of Law Enforcement and Retail.

With over 10,000 involved across the nation this is the biggest effort ever and your association's history and effort could play a vital role in helping legislators get to know the true extent of this epidemic.

So if you haven't written yours, or if you have an update, please get it in to us and we'll publish it and help spread the word. We have a state legislator initiative planned for July and August that will touch the vast majority of state legislators throughout the states that don't have ORC laws presently.

Education is the key and your association's history is a critical part of the process. Let's get 20 more state ORC laws. It's up to you.
