There seems to be no need to raise awareness that overdoses happen – as we are in the midst of an overdose crisis. There is a need to raise awareness that live do not need to be lost to overdose and there is much that can be done to prevent overdose.

Join us to remember and to prevent.

COVID-19 precautions will be in place – physical distancing and masks encouraged, hand sanitizer and wipes will be available.

Greetings
Speakers including those with lived experience
Recognition of lives lost and of the hope that loss of more lives can be prevented
Naloxone training and kits available
Awareness tables
Resource bags (non-perishable food and personal items) available
