Contact: Olga Shcherbyna
On August 31, 2021, the City of Delta, in collaboration with Fraser Health Authority, Delta Police Department, Delta School District and Tsawwassen First Nation will launch the Share Your Story initiative. The initiative builds on the End the Stigma campaign, launched in 2020, and which aims to combat stigma around using drugs and promotes harm reduction supports and resources available in Delta. The second phase of the campaign will include a social media campaign with videos featuring a community advocate with a lived experience of using drugs telling his story and answering questions about the harm reduction approach to supporting those who use drugs. In addition, the City will launch a new platform for community members to share their stories and a poster with sites in Delta to check your drugs for safety and get a free naloxone kits.
