We are hosting the Martinez Harm Reduction Collective to help teach students about substance usage, how to prevent overdoses, staying safe, and proper NARCAN training in case of an emergency.

Harm Reduction is a set of strategies that help to reduce or eliminate the harms that are associated with substance use. This includes efforts ranging anywhere from building relationships with individuals who are unhoused and/or use drugs, to pushing towards ending the War on Drugs. Harm reduction re-humanizes people by removing stigma, creating potential for bodily autonomy, and supporting incremental positive changes and healthier decisions.

Harm Reduction seeks to end the societal conditions that underlie drug use. By addressing systemic racism, sexism, transphobia, and queerphobia while also supporting universal healthcare, Harm Reduction strives to establish just living conditions and address mental health disparities that often drive individuals to self-medicate with drugs in order to ameliorate the weight of systemic oppression.
