On Saturday, August 15, 2020, Recover Fall River and Gone Too Soon, two local grassroots groups, invite individuals and family members who have been impacted by addiction and overdose to stand together against stigma. The event will support families who have lost loved ones and highlight the significant impact of addiction and overdose on not only the individual, but also their families and our entire community.
From 12:00-3:00pm family members, advocates and individuals who have been impacted by addiction and overdose will stand throughout the city. Family members who have previously submitted photos to Recover Fall River will be provided a poster-sized enlargements of their lost loved one and citizens are encouraged to join them in support of destigmatizing addiction and overdose. Anyone is invited to join in this Stand Out in a statement of solidarity against overdose, the country’s leading cause of death for people under the age of 50.
