Just What is # 2069?
The yard signs “#2069” that you may
have seen in a growing number of locations are a stark reminder,
that in 2016 in the State of Massachusetts alone, 2069 beautiful
souls died as a direct result of opioid abuse and addiction.
The signs are not intended to be
simply a memorial to those lost but a call for deeper awareness of
this epidemic in our midst. They are an invitation for us all to
unite as a common voice of concern, of support for those who live
with or confront this epidemic every day, and a voice working to
erase the stigma that surrounds those caught in the storms of
The idea for the signs and the
campaign began with the work of the Trinity Episcopal Church in
Wrentham MA’s Outreach Committee as they sought to know better their
call in the world immediately outside the door of their faith
The goal is simple. Using electronic
media, yard signs, and employing a bit of hard work, the goal is to
create a partnership with individuals, faith communities, families,
businesses and others to raise awareness of the opioid epidemic, to
encourage those who serve on the front lines of this crisis and to
talk openly and with understanding about the impact this epidemic
has on our world.
Please, as a faith community, an
individual, a family or business join us in this effort.
