The Power of Dignity: A Community Conversation on Substance Use, Stigma, Harm Reduction, Narcan Training at Putney Public Library
Tuesday, June 4th at 6:30 PM Location: Putney Public Library
Substance use impacts everyone. Join a free community discussion about:
• Understanding addiction & treatment
• Supporting those struggling
• Harm reduction strategies
• Importance of compassion & accountability
Even though no individual or organization has all the answers, community conversations grounded in mutual respect help generate dignified solutions to challenges related to substance use. Guest presenters include Dr. Geoff Kane from Meetinghouse Solutions and Dakota Roberts, Outreach Worker for the AIDS Project of Southern Vermont.
Light snacks provided.
For those interested in learning about overdose prevention, free naloxone (Narcan) and training will be available.
Let’s work together to address this challenge. For more information, please contact: CSUR802VT@gmail.com or (802) 275-7232
