we rent the park downtown and host a memorial BBQ to honour those who have lost their lives to overdose. last year we had traditional dancers and drumming and a local rap artist to entertain while service providers showcased their services and we did naloxone training. This year is the same event but we are also hosting a drug users meeting on the same day so people with lived experience can share their experiences. We have lost many people in our community due to lack of services or lack of continuity in services and feel that a large call out for feed back is important to feed into our advocacy efforts.
