International Overdose Awareness Day is a global event that 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.
Come write messages of hope and honour the lives lost to the overdose crisis for a mural that will be on display on August 31 at Carnarvon St. and Alexander St.
New Westminster is a community that supports individuals dealing and recovering from addiction.
