International Overdose Awareness Day

In partnership with the City-County Heroin, Opioid, and Cocaine Task Force (CCHOCTF), the Hoan will be lit purple in honor of International Overdose Awareness Day. On this day, we remember the lives lost in Milwaukee, and throughout the world, to drug overdose.

The CCHOCTF works to make recommendations that ensure the long-term health and safety of City and County residents by reducing fatal and nonfatal overdose from misuse of opioids, heroin, and cocaine through data-driven public health prevention approaches. The CCHOCTF represents multiple sectors from city, county, and state agencies and those with lived experiences of substance abuse. Visit for more information on overdose prevention, and to view the finalized report of the CCHOCTF.
