Overdose Awareness Day event in Cranbrook August 31

Overdose Awareness Day is on August 31 and ANKORS East Kootenay, Operation Street Angel and East Kootenay Network for People who Use Drugs (EK NPUD) are partnering with Cranbrook Community Action Team and the Ktunaxa Nation Social Investment Sector to host an awareness event at Operation Street Angel in Cranbrook.

The keynote speaker will be Ktunaxa Cultural Framework Educator Jared Basil.

“The Ktunaxa Nation Social Sector acknowledges inequities in health, and also the over-representation of Indigenous peoples regarding both substance use and overdose,” Jared said.

“As active partners in the community, and equally as important, the Kootenay region, the Social Sector will continue to play leading and supporting roles in the advocacy and awareness of that which effects the people.”
