President Trump sent out a reminder on Twitter Wednesday morning, announcing that an opioid victim memorial will be on display at the Ellipse near the White House, from April 12-18.

The project is in cooperation with the National Safety Counsel and the National Park Service. The NSC tweeted that a stunning 22,000 people die each year from prescription opioid overdoses, and said the memorial puts a face to each one.

Along with a video of the memorial, President Trump tweeted:

The @WhiteHouse is partnering with @Interior and @NatlParkService to bring the @NSCsafety’s “Prescribed to Death” Opioid Memorial to the Ellipse – beginning tomorrow, April 12th to April 18th.
