Featured speakers were Lauren Mandel and Kathryn Schuster from Keep It Moving and Annette Kahrs from Hope not Handcuffs Hudson Valley

Keep It Moving trained and distributed Narcan rescue kits on Wednesday during the session. Narcan is a life-saving drug that reverses opioid overdose. All participants 18 and older received a Narcan rescue kit.

According to its web site: “Keep It Moving has the mission to provide young people with the opportunity to engage in healthy, life-affirming activities. We fill the gap for young people with the desire to engage in a sport, music, or academic endeavor but do not have the financial means to do so.

“We are also dedicated to having Narcan, the life-saving drug that reverses opioid overdose, in every purse, backpack, and first-aid kit. We provide on-the-spot Narcan training for the community when and where it is needed – whether on the street, in a religious organization, living room or in a parking lot.”
