Raising Community Awareness
Not-for-Profit Foundation Helping Individuals Nationwide
Voices for Awareness Foundation based in Grand Junction, CO attends events nationwide to promote community awareness by sharing personal stories of loss and the effects of addiction and self-harm to prevent others from losing their lives to such causes. As a not-for-profit foundation, we speak on the dangers of counterfeit drugs and their prevalence in our world today.
How fake blue pills killed people on the Western Slope and led to Colorado’s first counterfeit opioid death conviction For the first time in Colorado, a drug dealer has been convicted of causing a person’s death from fentanyl pills disguised to look like prescription painkillers. The trial centered on one victim, but there were others.
