“This video series, it shows the growth of our community. The impact [of the crisis] has been rapid and hard and just mind blowing,” said panelist Tyla Savard to the audience after the screening.

Savard is an advocate with Moms Stop the Harm and a member of the task force. She identifies as someone with lived experience, sharing that her family has dealt directly with the crisis for six years.

“There is no grey area, there is no buffer with it, it is black and white, life or death and that is just a matter of fact,” she said. “And, unfortunately, it is the most severe thing ever.”
