The Grand Forks Community Action team and Moms Stop the Harm are sponsoring an event to mark International Overdose Awareness Day on August 28th. Three events in one day so you can choose which time slot suits you best. From 9 am to 2 pm there will be an information table, Naloxone Training and test strips training with an RN; at 10 am meet at Gyro Park (across from the Save-on-Foods) in Grand Forks for a ceremony and a walk through the downtown to Lois Hagan Park; and then at 7 pm re-group for a ceremony, speakers and a vigil to honour and remember all the lives lost to overdose. And If you do not live in the Boundary but wish to get information regarding overdose and addictions, ask around for an event in your area. Take a bit of time to learn and understand the issues and the search for creative, empowering solutions. The poster is below, just click download and all the information is there for you.
