Coalition Updates:

How you can be part of the solution: People across America are no longer able to ignore the racial disparities in our communities. In case you missed our recent video on our social media platforms, please take a few minutes out of your day to watch this important message from our Executive Director, Devin Reaves.

Updated training program options: Our team has worked to build out our existing training program to support a broader range of professionals. Please visit our training webpage to learn more about our training approach through the lens of our three key areas of focus: Harm Reduction, Anti-Racism, and Medical Professionals.

War on Drugs Explained: Our War On Drugs webinar recording with Tracie Gardner from Legal Action Center and Devin Reaves is up on YouTube! This webinar will help you deconstruct the war on drugs and better understand how race has played a key role in the development of American drug policy.
