WEBINAR: Faith in Harm Reduction for a conversation on Overdose, Race, & Justice (July 30, 2020) ( 1 ½ hours)


Faith in Harm Reduction is launching its webinar series with a conversation on Overdose, Race, and Justice. Join us in conversation to explore these questions (and more!) and to plot a way forward which sees the end of overdose and anti-blackness and the realization of liberation for our loved ones.

Why is the harm reduction movement talking about overdose as a social justice issue, as a racial justice issue??

Why is harm reduction critical to fulfilling the promise of health, wholeness, and freedom for Black and Indigenous people and other People of Color who use drugs?

What do our responses to overdose and substance use, in policy and practice, reveal about the treatment of Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color?

What might liberation from overdose and anti-blackness look like for our communities, and how do we get there?

Speakers include:

️Reverend Dr. Orisha Bowers—Harm Reduction Coalition and Orixa Healing Arts Wellness and Spiritual Center

️Monique Tula—Harm Reduction Coalition

️Kassandra Frederique—Drug Policy Alliance

️Marilyn Reyes—Faith in Harm Reduction and Peer Network of New York

WEBINAR: Addressing Racial Disparities in Overdose Deaths in San Francisco (2 hours 39 minutes)


SF Behavioral Health Services (vimeo.com) Recorded May 19, 2021

San Francisco is in an epidemic of overdose deaths. 699 people died due to overdoses in 2020, a 59% rise from 2019,and more than three times the number of people that died of COVID-19 during the same period. Within the epidemic lies another, more hidden, racial epidemic. The rate of opioid deaths is five times higher for Black San Franciscans than for whites. Overdose rates for the Latinx community in San Francisco is nearly double their percentage in the population. This webinar will pull the lens back and examine the mechanisms of structural racism and white supremacy in society, medicine, and addiction treatment that underlie these deaths. It will examine innovative interventions that have involved the community in addressing the epidemic using harm reduction methods. Participants will hear from community activists, learn from their insights, and contribute to formulating plans that can save lives. Black Lives Matter!
