Harm Reduction Part 3: Policy View
We're wrapping up our harm reduction mini-series with an interview with Tracie Gardner, Senior Vice President of Policy Advocacy at the Legal Action Center, to discuss the past and present political advocacy efforts around harm reduction.
Hear Tracie discuss how she came into harm reduction work, federal policies and advocacy initiatives that are moving us forward, the disproportionate harm the Black community has faced throughout the War on Drugs, and what advice she would give to those looking to get involved in harm reduction advocacy.
Resources (from LAC's website):
- Treatment for opioid use disorder – not separate but still unequal
- How equitable strategies in harm reduction are keeping communities safe
- Maia Szalavitz: “The work you’re doing before you get out of the chaos still counts.”
- Harm Reduction for All Drugs and All People? The Government Isn’t Sure.
