Purple Ribbon Campaign
The Purple Ribbon Campaign is an annual campaign to raise awareness leading up to International Opioid Overdose Awareness Day on August 31. The campaign focuses on sharing resources, promoting discussion, and offering information related to the drug and opioid crisis and is a response to the urgent need to address the stigma that surrounds drug use. Through raising awareness, the campaign supports healing and creating change within our communities and our Nation. Okanagan Nation Alliance aims to reduce overdose by promoting harm reduction and safe spaces to talk about mental health & addiction, reducing stigma and shame, raising awareness, and supporting healing.
