LGBTQ2 & Allies Youth Group
May 31 @ 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM

Youth-group only conversation about drug use, with Naloxone training to follow

Come by for pizza and snacks, and join in the conversation about drug use. Whether you use drugs or not, you probably know someone who does. Share your experience and ideas for how to keep each other safe—and bring your questions.

Deborah Dykstra (Community Action Team) will be there to chat, as well. Following the discussion will be Naloxone training to those who are interested.

What is Naloxone?: Naloxone is a safe, highly effective chemical compound that reverses the effects of opiates such as fentanyl, which can be found in many substances—including cocaine and other stimulants. In other words, if you believe someone may be overdosing on an opiate, an injection of Naloxone can save their life. It takes about 30 minutes to learn how to do it.

Information is power and can keep you and your peers safe.

For ages 12 – 24.

Presented by Sunday in the Park with Pride Society.
