For the second installment of our Community Sustainers Drive we sit down with Hillary Brown, director of the Steady Collective, an organization committed to improving overall community health by reducing the rate of drug overdose and the spread of infectious disease with education, advocacy, and direct services. In our conversation we discuss the approach and principles of harm reduction, the challenges involved in implementing these programs, the connection between the opioid crisis, racism, and criminalization, and ways in which listeners can support the work of Steady Collective. We offer this vital conversation in hopes of shedding light on what is needed to continue this life-saving work.
