When: Saturday, June 15th at 5:00 PM

Dave has been an active ally with the Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users since its founding and played key roles in supporting and organizing actions.

Discussion will focus on some of the grassroots work done by drug users and allies around education, peer support and political actions that laid important and crucial groundwork for the establishment of Insite.

Dave will explore aspects of the safe injection site narrative that often don't get the recognition they deserve but were crucial to the emergence of Insite, before the momentum was taken up by health and government officials.

We aim for this to be an anti-oppressive space & stigma-free space for people who use drugs.
