Virtual Vigil 2020

The Brockton Area Prevention Collaborative will partner with the Plymouth Area Prevention Collaborative to host this year’s overdose vigil. The video will go LIVE from YouTube on Monday August 31 at 7pm (International Overdose Awareness Day).

Each year the Collaborative holds an Annual Overdose Vigil by Candlelight.

In 2013 the original memorial slideshow contained 22 photographs that played to a single song. Today, this video is about 25 minutes long and includes 352 individuals who have left this world too soon.
