International Overdose Awareness Day of Performance Art & Political Action
The Los Angeles chapter of A New PATH will join with the Drug Policy Alliance, Cri-Help, Inc., Paso Por Paso, Broken-No-More and other organizations to hold a “performance art" happening: “Rock LIFE! Prevent accidental overdose!” This action is part of the national Moms United to End the War on Drugs campaign.
Meet at Cri-Help, Inc., Socorro Campus near Lincoln park and walk in a funeral procession to the front of the L.A. County Coroner’s office and onto the steps of the USC Medical Center where we will stage a “Die In” to bring awareness to those lost through accidental overdose. We are demanding greater access to Naloxone and working to eliminate stigma by treating drug overdoses like any other medical emergency.
