The Arlington Committee of 100 fosters open and vigorous discussion of issues involving all facets of community life in Arlington. The Committee's monthly forums are open to all and provide a non-partisan setting in which issues of local, regional, and state interest are addressed by experts, with audience participation in lively Q&A sessions.
There has been a spike in drug overdose deaths and opioid-involved deaths in the United States. In fact, the majority of drug overdose deaths involve an opioid and overdoses from prescription opioids are a driving factor in this 16-year spike. Join us in February when our program will focus on this escalating crisis and its impact on Arlington residents. What is happening in Arlington and are we prepared to adequately respond to this crisis? Our speakers will share their views and inform us on on community efforts.
