20,000 purple flags were planted in Boston Common to represent each Massachusetts resident who has lost their life to overdose in the past 10 years. The flags were placed at Liberty Mall in front of the Statehouse to allow people to visit, reflect, and remember the lives lost in the Commonwealth. Information and resources are also available on overdose prevention, naloxone access, resources, and ways to access addiction treatment.
