Harm reduction workers are fully empowered and supported to sustainably navigate traumatic grief & loss experiences connected with the drug poisoning crisis through an ecosystem of accessible and culturally relevant supports.
The Network will collaborate to support and empower harm reduction workers to foster self-determined healthy relationships with grief and loss connected to the drug poisoning crisis by enhancing capacity, providing supports and resources, as well as advocating for systems-level change.
Equity, accessibility and social justice include a commitment to anti-oppressive and anti-racist practice, recognizing that oppression overlaps and intersects for many people.
Collective care and interdependence as well as meaningful engagement and leadership for those most affected by the drug poisoning crisis where ‘no decisions are made about us without us’.
All work is approached from a harm reduction and trauma-informed lens.
