This will be the third annual International Overdose Awareness Day ANKORS & The East Kootenay Network of People who Use Drugs will be hosting. It will be a day of honouring and remembering those we have lost, raising awareness in our community, and celebrating all the hard work peers and community based organization have been doing to keep our community members alive. We will be hosting the event later in the day so people who are not able to make it during the day due to work conflicts, can still participate. There will be a protest from ANKORS to City Hall at 12pm. Events at Street Angles will start around 2 – 3, and go until 7pm. There is going to be an indigenous focus, and we hope to have drummers, dancing, and other cultural activities, along with Naloxone Training, Drug Checking, and more. We will end the day with a vigil to honour our fallen soldiers.

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