"The non-profit is a peer-to-peer harm reduction organization that promotes responsible partying though awareness and education of health and safety at music, art, and public festivals…"
“Lightning in a Bottle organizers also invited the PLUR Angels, a group rising out of the festival scene that uses roaming volunteers to spot anyone who may be having a tough time and connect them to medical services or Zendo…”
"The teams of dedicated volunteers that arrive to help are all very engaged and responsive. They work seamlessly with our Security company and EMT Teams to assist Patrons in need during the event. We believe that having the Angels engaged with attendees has helped reduce the number of medical transports during the events."
