Moving to a community engagement and online format, the IOAD planning committee has been working to develop an online campaign with a week of social media engagement activities, resources, personal stories, videos, and calls to action. During the week leading up to August 31st, we are asking community members, local businesses, and community organizations to show their solidarity with people who use drugs by hosting a banner or poster within their spaces and in their windows containing important messaging and demands to end the overdose crisis and to improve the lives of people who use drugs in our communities. All of the work throughout this week will be shared and posted across social media platforms. We will be holding a online debrief space after August 31st to hold space for people who have been impacted by overdose, as a space of solidarity, of anger, of healing, of tribute and of love.
