Town Hall Meeting – Are Safe Drug Injection Sites Safe for the Black Community?

By June 8, 2018 June 11th, 2018 Events
6.13.18 Town Hall – Are Safe Drug Injection Sites Safe for the Black Community?

Amina Saunders and Rev. Keith Collins, Co-Chairs, IBW Philadelphia Regional Justice Collaborative And Rev. Nick Taliaferro, Pastor, West Philadelphia Seven Day Adventist Church Invite you To Attend/Participate

The Issue

Mayor Jim Kenny, District Attorney Larry Krasner and drug policy reform advocates are promoting the idea of creating sites where drug users can take drugs under medical supervision. They believe this will reduce the harm that drug users might inflict on the community. Those who are opposed to safe injection sites, including States Attorney General Josh Shapiro, warn that this is simply encouraging rather than discouraging people to use drugs. We invite you to attend/participate in a Town Hall Meeting to hear about and discuss this very important issue.
