Gone Too Soon

 The Sacramento County Opioid Coalition started the Gone Too Soon Memorial Poster Project to remember those who lost their lives to opioids in the Sacramento region. We are asking the community for permission to utilize their loved one’s photo with some words about them. If this epidemic has changed your world as it has ours, we would be honored to have your participation in our project. Permission must come from next of kin. 

To share your loved one’s story, please download the SCOC permission form and email it to Amber Arif at [email protected]

The Gone Too Soon Memorial Project displays a series of poster-size photos of those lost to opioids. We are humanizing the statistics by offering a look at the faces of community members and showing the great losses we have faced, both together and apart. The posters will be shared here, at in-person events, on social media, and in videos. 

The personal qualities shared invite us to glimpse into a part of their personality and what they liked to do (i.e. Compassionate, Musician).

These photos are displayed with intention to educate and heal our community and each are treated and stored with respect.

We would be honored to have support from you and your loved ones in increasing awareness on the dangers of opioids and in the possibility of preventing future losses.
