Candlelight Vigil Overdose Awareness

Candlelight Vigil Overdose Awareness

“A Night to Remember, a Time to  Act”

Public invited to event remembering those lost, struggling with opioid addiction

“EVERETT, Wash.  In 2016, Snohomish County lost over 90 people to an opioid overdose. The tragedy of overdose is far too frequent but is ultimately preventable. Overdose prevention, education and recognition play a crucial role in saving lives.”

Families in our community share their stories of loss and hope, in honor of their loved ones.

This event features Our very own 21st Rep, Strom Peterson, who will present a short program, as well as remarks from other officials.
