As Indigenous youth, many of us have experienced overdose ourselves, in our families, or in our communities. This Overdose Day, join our space for Indigenous youth to come together and share our experiences and connect through peer education and support.
We will be playing a harm reduction bingo, there will be prizes! Before the game we will be having conversations about how to respond to an overdose, and how to take care of ourselves and our communities.
This event is FREE and open to Indigenous youth aged 14-29 years old. It will be facilitated by Indigenous youth who work with the Yúusnewas team!
We will be hosting this event online, using our virtual meeting platform - Zoom. To participate, you will need access to a device connected to the internet with display, sound and mic capabilities like a laptop, desktop with headphones or a smartphone.
If your needs to access this event are not mentioned above, please contact Nona via email [email protected] for more information.
Win your choice of prize: a $50 giftcard of your choice, or your choice of items from Cheekbone Beauty, Decolonizing Daughters, or The Silver Moccasin! We are only able to ship prizes to Indigenous youth who currently are living in what we now refer to as British Columbia.
Yúusnewas is an Indigenous youth-led program that provides opportunities for Indigenous youth to connect with each other, build skills and knowledge to take care of each other, and challenge stigma related to HIV and Hep C. Yúusnewas programs are open to Indigenous youth who are based in what is colonially called British Columbia.
We approach the topics of sexual health and harm reduction by centering Indigenous perspectives and incorporating traditional teachings.
