|The AIDS Committee of Windsor (ACW), the Windsor Essex Community Opioid Substance Strategy, neighbourhood community groups, and the voices of people impacted by substance use are introducing a new travelling community display to officially launch the
“Label Me Person” Anti-Stigma Awareness Campaign.
The purpose of this campaign will be to increase awareness about the opioid crisis through personal narratives of people impacted by substance use.
The campaign and display will also provide opportunities for the community to participate in 24 educational workshops addressing topics of harm reduction, opioids and naloxone, and consumption and treatment services over a one year period.
The campaign will look to engage residents in our region to become change agents in addressing stigma associated with substance use.
We look forward to sharing campaign updates, videos and resources through future social media posts and on our website.
To read the stories of those living with substance use, or to find out where our display will be next, or to register for a workshop – go to www.labelmeperson.com
A special thank you to all of the persons impacted by substance use, for sharing your experience and your leadership, and participation in this campaign.
