Remembering Lives Lost:ツThe Our Lives MatterツMemorial Quilt Project

It is time we put names and faces together in a patchwork made up of those who have lost their lives to addiction because Our Lives Matter too!

This project will serve to bring awareness to the largest national health crisis of our time 窶 substance use disorders and the disease of addiction 窶 which have been ignored and stigmatized by all segments of society for far too long.

We plan to memorialize and bring a voice to those individuals who have lost their battle with this illness. With the help of loved ones, family, friends, and survivors, our hope is that the magnitude of this crisis comes to light. Our dream is that recovery support and addiction treatment services will finally receive the recognition and funding that other illnesses have long been afforded. If You Need Help… The OUR LIVES MATTER Project specializes in helping people make panels for the OUR LIVES MATTER Memorial Quilt through panel making workshops. To learn more about panel making or The OUR LIVES MATTER Project, call Stephanie Hastings at 717-545-8929 ext 3.
