Supported by community partnerships and conversations, we are implementing a new harm reduction program at the Student Outreach Clinic. The program will adhere to the principles and practices of the historical harm reduction movement and stand in solidarity with all our neighbors. Long-term goals include an advisory board composed of people with lived experience. Conversations and trainings around harm reduction have also invited volunteers into conversations about stigma, hierarchies of dominance, and structural analyses of social problems.
