The city of Northampton recognized International Overdose Awareness Day on Aug. 31 with an Overdose Awareness and Prevention Vigil in Pulaski Park. The vigil featured critical harm reduction resources and Hampshire County organizations who continue to fight the stigma around overdoses and drug addiction. The event in Pulaski Park featured local harm reduction and recovery resources, testing, syringe access programs, peer groups and Narcan training and access. Among the tables participating were representatives from Hampshire Hope, Northampton Recovery Center, Tapestry Health, Nothing But Kindness and many more.

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

Do your part and support these unrecognised responders by pushing for change today.
