Coalition Updates:

The team at PAHRC took a field trip to NYC this past week to meet with VOCAL-NY, Harm Reduction Coalition, and Katal Center -- we are excited to bring some of the knowledge we learned from organizations that are doing incredible work in NY back to PA!

New Program Announced:

The HERO Empowerment Leadership Program is a 2-day advocacy leadership training that will teach you the skills needed to deliver the HERO Initiative Opioid Response Advocacy Forum to your own and surrounding communities, and mobilize advocates to be part of a movement that will change the way Pennsylvania responds to the overdose epidemic and the war on drugs. This program is only open to 20 people and selections will be made based on our application process. Visit this link for more information.
