Invocation, Share current local statistics, meet with local providers/resources, Narcan kits, share stories of those we lost, and then a moment of silence.

International Overdose Awareness Day is a global event held on 31 August each year and aims to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death. It also acknowledges the grief felt by families and friends remembering those who have died or had a permanent injury as a result of drug overdose.

Please mark your calendars and start sending in your photos and stories to share! This year we plan on creating a banner with pictures and create an audio presentation to share as well.

If you have any questions, please send a message or email to naomi.vega@enlighteninghopeproject.com.

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.
