The event will have a speaker from the perspective of a sibling who has lost two siblings to drug overdose and from a member of Learn to Cope, which is a peer led support group for families who have loved ones who have or maybe experiencing issues with substance use disorder.

The front windows of Town Hall will be lit will purple lights. Family members, friends or anyone in the community will have the opportunity to write the name of their loved ones that they lost due to a drug overdose on purple lawn flags that will be placed in front of Town Hall. This event will also have resources and an opportunity for education and networking.

Overdose affects everyone. From grieving families to spontaneous first responders, the impacts of overdose are far-reaching and fall indiscriminately.

Sign up to the International Overdose Awareness Day newsletter and become part of the global movement to end overdose.
