A Kojo Roadshow on the Opioid Epidemic in Anne Arundel County

By Margaret Barthel

The opioid epidemic continues to shatter lives in the Washington region, and communities are coming together to try to combat it. Anne Arundel County is stepping up its response, with schools, libraries, churches, health centers, fire and police stations, the courts, and grassroots groups all pitching in to prevent overdoses and provide access to addiction treatment.

Join WAMU 88.5’s Kojo Nnamdi for a townhall-style discussion about how the crisis is being felt in Anne Arundel County and what the community is doing in response. This is the first event in a series of community discussions we’re hosting to mark Kojo’s 20th anniversary on air. An edited version of the event conversation will air later in the week.

Register to attend here

Tuesday, October 23, 2018 at the Crofton Community Library (1681 Riedel Road, Crofton, MD 21114).

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Recording will start promptly at 6:30 p.m. Free and open to the public.
