Overdose Prevention

Naloxone Saves Flyer

I lost my first friend to overdose when I was 15, and I’ve lost many more since. Unfortunately the churches my friends were connected to were sources of shame instead of compassion, leaving them to feel separate from their community and separate from God.

Now we are seeing record numbers of overdoses. I created this service because I am passionate about supporting faith communities in developing the spiritual and practical tools they need to respond to this crisis.

This service is meant to be both a healing balm and a call to action. Because every life is worth saving and every life is beloved by God.

The service includes music, ritual, training, and a message. For information about scheduling please email me at femminary@gmail.com or call 510-901-1262.
