Love in the Time of Fentanyl | Film Screening with Q&A


Love in the Time of Fentanyl | RSVP here

Thu., Feb. 9, 2023 at 7 p.m. | As deaths in Vancouver, Canada, reach an all-time high, the Overdose Prevention Society opens its doors—a renegade supervised drug consumption site that employs active and former drug users. Its staff and volunteers do whatever it takes to save lives and give hope to a marginalized community in this intimate documentary that looks beyond the stigma of people who use fentanyl and other drugs. 

Following the film, join the conversation about harm reduction and resources available in mid-Michigan. Scheduled panelists include:

  • Jerry Norris, The Fledge (moderator)
  • Julia Miller, Punks with Lunch Lansing
  • Pamela Lynch, Harm Reduction Michigan
  • Trey Helten, appears in the film
  • Nick DeMott, state-certified peer coach

This virtual event is free, but RSVP here is required. The viewer registering will need to create a free OVEE account and will be asked to provide their birthdate to verify their age as 13 or older.
