WWAV Takes It to the Streets for International Overdose Awareness Day!

Saturday, August 31, 2013 was International Overdose Awareness Day, and Women With A Vision was out in force — tabling under the Claiborne Avenue overpass at Claiborne and Esplanade Avenues¬†to raise awareness about the reality of overdoses in New Orleans and across the nation. We had education materials on overdose and harm reduction, and were collecting stories to support the passage of Good Samaritan 911 legislation in the state of Louisiana. As always, we thank YOU, our community, for allowing us to hold this important space to¬†address the stigma associated with overdose and ensure that we all have the tools and resources to live the lives we want to lead.
