Youth Fentanyl Awareness Collaboration Forum – October 26

October 26, 2023

This forum is targeted at coalitions, non-profits, law enforcement, and other agencies who are trying to raise awareness about fentanyl/fake pills to youth in their communities, but is open to anyone interested in youth fentanyl/synthetic drug awareness.

October 26 Meeting Agenda:

  • 9:00am-10:15am PST
    Social Norms Experts Michael Haines and Dr. Wesley Perkins – “Social Norms in the Context of Fentanyl Awareness” (Presentation brought to us by HIDTA ADAPT- A Division for Advancing Prevention & Treatment)
  • 10:15am-10:30am PST
    Song for Charlie – Marcia Lee Taylor- The New Drug Talk: “Connect to Protect”

The purpose of Fentanyl Awareness Collaboration Forum is to gather organizations doing youth fentanyl awareness work together via zoom on a regular basis so we all can share what we are working on, learn from each other, learn from expert guests, and perhaps collaborate on campaigns/solutions. Song for Charlie does not claim to always know the best way to get our fentanyl awareness messaging out to youth, but we do know that sharing knowledge and collaborating makes us all better, and we want to provide a forum where we can do that.
