This year’s been tough. COVID, continuing police brutality toward Black people, and all of the economic fallout has driven so many of us into instability, chaos, rage, isolation, and grief. Any “wins” we’ve seen nationally around decreased overdose have quickly turned to losses. Even fewer resources and community support are available. If we want to see changes, we have to do it together.
Join us on our Facebook page for #internationaloverdoseawarenessday this year as a space to remember, learn, and strategize to keep Arizonans alive, safe, free, and thriving.
Live panel discussion with brilliant local speakers (to be announced soon) focused on the intersections of overdose, harm reduction, and racial justice.
Monday, 8/31, 5-6pm MST
We’ll also be posting community-submitted art, writings, thoughts, and more throughout the day.
