Suzanne Nash

Suzanne Nash is a dedicated worker at the Indigenous Peoples Task Force in Minneapolis who has faced the devastating impact of the fentanyl crisis firsthand. Her son, Joey Nash, tragically lost his life to a fentanyl overdose in 2021. Joey was known for his love of fishing and skateboarding and had achieved eight months of sobriety before his untimely death at the age of 28.

Suzanne’s experience with her son’s struggle and loss has propelled her into advocacy, highlighting the dire consequences of opioid addiction and the broader epidemic it signifies. She emphasizes the significant role of pharmaceutical companies in creating a generation dependent on opioids, leading to a shift to street drugs as prescriptions cease. Suzanne’s insight into the crisis reflects a deep understanding of its roots and a call to action for communities to acknowledge and address this escalating problem.
