British gallery turns down $1.3 million Sackler donation

A $1.3 million donation to the National Portrait Gallery, UK, has been withdrawn because the potential donors are alleged to have fuelled the US opioid crisis. In a joint statement, the Sackler Trust and the National Portrait Gallery said they had ’jointly agreed not to proceed at this time’ with the donation. The Sackler family owns Purdue Pharma, seller of prescription painkiller OxyContin.
