Join Racine County in raising awareness to end overdose, remember without stigma those who have died, and acknowledge the grief of the family and friends left behind. Learn more about resources and services available in the county including Narcan training, treatment, and harm reduction.
Each year, hundreds of thousands of people around the world are lost to overdoses. Others survive but suffer permanent injury, with devastating impact to their families and friends. Racine County is not immune. You may have been affected in some way. It could easily happen to someone you love. International Overdose Awareness Day provides an opportunity for us to talk about and prevent overdose in our community. Knowing the real facts about drugs and what to do when you see someone experiencing an overdose saves lives.
Food will be available for purchase from Jacob’s Smokehouse food truck. There will be two Yoga of Recovery sessions hosted by Jamie Mullen Yoga (https://fb.me/e/2Tu2ocKFL) – all levels welcome. You do not need to be in recovery to join – friends, loved ones, caregivers, allies are all welcome to join in and hold space at this event.

The overdose epidemic is everyone's problem, but it's being left to a small group to step up.

Do your part and support these unrecognised responders by pushing for change today.
