May 16 • 3-5pm
MAIN ST WAYNESVILLE (Assemble at 2:30 on Academy St)

The mission of this event is to bring community awareness and support for the drug crisis that plagues our entire country. We will be carrying 15 banners - each with the beautiful faces of young people who have lost their lives to a substance-related death. We will have several featured speakers as well as awareness advocates and representatives from outreach organizations and treatment centers in Western North Carolina.

CHANGE starts with AWARENESS. AWARENESS starts with COMMUNITY. We ARE Community!! This event is open to the public and all are invited!
