OD Memorial March (Jan 28)

Join us Thursday 28th to demand Not One More Death from overdoses in Victoria. 40 people overdosed during December – 8 people died. This is preventable with supervised consumption services, and Victoria’s health authority is lagging behind other regions in Canada in taking critical steps towards providing these services. Come out to remember those who have been lost because of inadequate services, and show your support for immediate action in Victoria!

Where: Centennial Square
When: 12pm ~ the march will return to Centennial Square at 12:40pm for a small meal, guest speakers, open mic, and moment of silence.

Flowers will also be available so community members can pay their respects.

We acknowledge and respect that this event is taking place on traditional, unceded Lkwungen and WSÁNEĆ territories

For any questions, please be in touch with us at yes2scs@gmail.com.
