GODWIN & FREEMAN HIGH SCHOOLS PARTNER FOR A COMMUNITY EVENT:
“HEROIN: THE HARDEST HIT”
Please join us on Monday, April 3 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Godwin High School, for a special event addressing the growing epidemic of opioid addiction in our communities.
Godwin High School, Freeman High School, and the Henrico Heroin Task Force are partnering with the Virginia Attorney General’s office to present the documentary “Heroin: The Hardest Hit.” Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring will introduce the film and also lead a panel discussion following the film, incorporating questions from the audience.
The panel will feature a distinguished group of professionals, including a physician, an FBI agent, and a Mental Health professional. Also on the panel will be community members, including Jenny Derr, who lost her son as a result of a heroin overdose, a person in recovery, and a county police officer. In order to fight this growing problem, we must accept the reality that heroin addiction is wide-spread and affects all ages, races, and socioeconomic groups.
Exhibitors from various community resources will be on-hand beginning at 6:30.
Please plan to attend this most informative, moving, and important event. Godwin High School is located at 2101 Pump Road, Henrico VA 23238.
This event is open to the entire community, so please feel free to bring friends, teenagers, and neighbors. No hard-copy tickets will be required to attend this free event, but we do ask that attendees register at https://heroinhardesthitgodwinfreeman.eventbrite.com.
