Name of Organisation: Acacia Network
Contact: Bernard Moore
Platanos Y Collard Greens, Balloon Release Memorial & Recovery Festival will be a culturally relevant Overdose Awareness event that seeks to give our community space and time to remember their friends and family lost to overdose in a positive, hopeful way that reinforces recovery and harm reduction. We will be serving comfort food (e.g., Roast pork, fried chicken, rice & beans, collard greens, and fried plantains). There will be Narcan, Fentanyl & Xylazine training, client & peer testimonials about recovery amid loss, a memorial balloon release, health screenings, free giveaways, and a Gift Card Prize Salsa & Merengue dance contest!
