Purple Ribbons In Little Earth Community Alert For Houses Supplied With Narcan

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Little Earth Community says it has been hit hard by the nation-wide opioid epidemic, but it has figured out a way to empower people who live there to save lives. Purple ribbons are plastered on doors and windows at Little Earth so people in crisis know where to go.

“We were drowning in the opioid epidemic before anybody else was and nobody cared,” resident Jolene Jones said. “When you’re drowning you either swim or die, and we weren’t going to sit here and let our people die.”
