We will start on August 1st, 2022. We will have lived experience videos put on Social Media twice a week until the 31st. We will have stories in the newspaper once a week about lived experience, satistics, and education until the 31st. We will give away Overdose Awareness T-Shirts and bracelets. We will daily put a quote on our NC Overdose Awareness group page and page. We will pressure the DA to send people with addiction to rehab instead of jail. On the day of Overdose Awareness Day we will have a vigil. Before that vigil we will have a band, quest speakers with satistics and education, lived experience stories, vendors, Narcan training, education what to look for, give out harm reduction, have a board for pictures with candles and have a walk for Awareness on Main Street with our candles. That will end the event.
