August 31: International Overdose Awareness Day 

  1. As part of International Overdose Awareness Day events in Victoria on August 31, AVI and SOLID will offer free overdose prevention and response training, including free naloxone kits, during this drop-in space at Centennial Square. Please come by and one of our trainers will walk you through a short training and provide you with a naloxone kit to take with you. This is also open to people who have received the training previously and would like a refresher. Please join us afterwards at 6pm for a rally with food, speakers & music, as well as a vigil to follow to honour our loved ones. More information about these events here: https://www.facebook.com/events/291090141363034/
  2. August 31 marks International Overdose Awareness Day. Here on the territory of the Lekwungen speaking people (Victoria), home of the Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations, we will come together in our grief, our loss and our determination to honour those we still love and have lost to overdose.

    6pm: Rally together to call for immediate action to save lives. Let's raise our voices together to call on those in power to move swiftly on evidence-based, harm reduction strategies that we in the community know work!

    A quiet vigil will follow to send our love to those we have lost. Let's honour our memories of them together.
