Please join us on this year's International Overdose Awareness Day to remember the lives of those lost to preventable drug poisoning, and to protest the do-nothing attitude being embraced by such Maine legislators as Rep. Patty Hymanson. This event has the potential to turn into a more happy and hopeful event- a solemn remembrance followed by a celebration of the Maine legislature's forward movement... But we will see within the coming weeks if they choose to support science or stigma... life or death. If they choose to support stigma and death, then the OD Vigil will be followed by a protest against Maine and municipal policies that are killing People Who Use Drugs (PWUD).
