How do systemic inequalities and our economic systems feed into the ongoing overdose crisis?

In this community-led presentation and workshop, Garth Mullins, host of the Crackdown podcast will ask the Crackdown Editorial Board of a half dozen drug user activists how the war on drugs is killing their friends and family, how their activism could end the deaths and what that looks like in the day to day. 

After the panel discussion, there will be a Narcan training workshop so you can carry away a Naloxone kit and the skills to use it.

This event will be taped for a future episode of Crackdown
