Opioid overdose is a byproduct of institutionalized racial violence. In 2018, CRA launched an aggressive opioid overdose expansion initiative. It addresses institutional racism and structural violence by focusing on community care and resilience and preventing the trauma of avoidable overdose deaths.
No one in the history of the world has done more to prevent opioid overdose death than Dan Bigg. At CRA’s event on on International Overdose Awareness Day 2018, several attendees stopped by our “video voice booth” to share their remembrances of history’s greatest overdose warrior.
At our International Overdose Awareness Day 2018, we had a “video voice” booth to capture attendees’ reflections on overdose and OD awareness. Please watch this short compilation, which features Mark Kinzly, Entropy Ernst, and Elizabeth Salisbury, Matthew Silver, and other wonderful humans.
Memorial-tribute video to honor the life of Dan Bigg. This video contains a collection of existing footage of Dan along with people interviews with people who knew him and have been inspired by him and his work.

We are very happy to be releasing the final version of our new training video on the use of injectable naloxone to reverse opioid overdose. Please check it out and share widely. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all of the wonderful people who participated in this project, on camera and behind the scenes.
