    In our current reality of substance addiction and overdose, those who have struggled with addiction or watched loved ones do so deserve a voice, recognition, and support. The event includes a variety of activities such as guest speakers, a poem-reading about addiction’s effects, an opportunity for members of the public to speak, live music, a candle lighting ceremony, a dove release, and access to free materials on substance abuse, addiction, grief, local resources, and more! By hosting this event we hope to remember those who have passed on, support those who experience substance misuse first and second-hand, and, most importantly, inspire hope of overcoming addiction. No one should be fighting alone.
