National Anti-Heroin Rally - Occupy Yourself - Get Unloaded  (4364)

09/15/2012 11:00 AM - 09/15/2012 1:00 PM

Anti-heroin organizations from all across the country will be conducting awareness events on Saturday, September 15th. The purpose of these rallies and memorials is to bring awareness of the heroin epidemic and the death and destruction it is causing nationwide
into the public eye, and to pay our respects to the tens of thousands of young people who have been lost to the heroin epidemic in recent years. Heroin and opiate-related death has become the #1 cause of accidental death in the United States, surpassing even
traffic accidents and U.S. war deaths combined in the past ten years. Heroin is killing our young people at an extremely alarming rate due to the lack of awareness that this drug is readily available in our communities, is cheaper than a six-pack of beer,
and is extremely addictive. There will be music, information about this important issue and NARCAN training. The Heroin Awareness Committee will also be introducing the Occupy Yourself, Get Unloaded Initiative (OYI) which is HAC's new youth division. NEW shirts
and wristbands will be available to purchase PLUS we will have a raffle with some great prizes.
