Mission to create its own Low Barrier Chorus

Info session set for Fraser House on March 12 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Anyone interested in becoming part of the Mission-based Low Barrier Chorus is invited to attend a free information session.

The session takes place on March 12 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Fraser House located at 33063 4th Ave.

According to Kat Wahamaa, project coordinator for the Mission Overdose Community Action Team, anybody can be part of the Low Barrier Chorus.

“A lot of the people who are part of it though are substance users, some have lost family members to overdose.”

The Maple Ridge chapter performed last years at the Mission Folk Music Festival to bring the message of harm reduction

“We sing about the issues, we rewrite song lyrics to help spread the message.”

Wahamaa said the chorus raises awareness and is also a place for people to gather, come together for support.

After the initial session, the group will be meeting every Thursday at 6:30 p.m. starting March 27. Everyone is welcome to come by and check it out.
