Californians Talk about Overdose
Californians from across the state talk about the impact overdose has had on their lives and the need to implement effective, low-cost solutions right away.
"You never know when people are right there on the verge of turning their lives around."
"It's very important that people that see an overdose, feel like they can call 911."
"It's such an honor to see people get a second chance in life, to see the lights come on again."
"We are at a crisis point of overdoses in California, and many of those overdoses lead to death because people are too afraid to call for help."
"Advocating for this bill comes out of care...that a person will not die needlessly...because of this lack of protection for someone who reports it."
