Does Harm Reduction encourage Drug Use?

A Strathcona discussion of harm reduction and drug use, a topic relevant to the local context and beyond
Wednesday, May 15, 2013
Presented by the End Prohibition Project and facilitated by SRA chair Pete Fry. The presentation will be given by Ann Livingston (co-founder of VANDU) and Dave Murray (member of VANDU), and challenges the popular notion that strategies that seek to reduce the harmful effects of currently illicit drugs (such as safe injection sites, needle exchanges, opiate maintenance programs, etc.) promote the use of drugs in the community. After the presentation, there will be time for dialogue and discussion.
7pm - Strathcona Community Centre - Multipurpose Room
