Non-profit Fenta Nah to host its first Fentanyl Awareness Fall Festival. CapRadio podcast “This is What it Feels Like” discussing losing a parent to suicide.
‘Fenta Nah’ Awareness Festival
Fentanyl is an epidemic that continues to harm communities across the country. This weekend a new nonprofit, Fenta Nah, will be holding its inaugural Fentanyl Awareness Fall Festival on Oct. 28, from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Camellia Grove Lawn at the Capitol Mall, offering a number of live-saving resources and information. Executive Director Tracy Robinson and Vice President and Director of Operations Shei’vonne Weber join Insight to talk about the festival, as well as how the loss of their daughter and sister Abresha Oates to fentanyl motivated them to support other families touched by this crisis.
“This is What It Feels Like” Losing a Parent to Suicide
Each week we’ve explored CapRadio’s new podcast “This is What it Feels Like” which shares the voices that are often overlooked or politicized by society. We’ve walked in the shoes of people who have navigated healthcare as a trans person, opened up about the harm of “catcalling culture,” given us an inspiring glimpse into what it’s like to be 106 years old, and listened to those who have gone through an abortion. These are firsthand, intimate, conversations that don’t typically happen, and they’re possible because of host Terra Lopez, an artist with deep ties to Sacramento. The final episode is one that is very personal to Terra– sharing what it’s like to lose a parent to suicide. Terra didn’t just share her own loss. She sat down with others who have also experienced that similar, but unique, pain. Mike Rafter is in the final episode. He and Terra joined Insight to talk about the importance of sharing a profoundly pivotal experience that often is attached to stigma.
