Why InSite won: A forum on the community struggle for Vancouver’s supervised injection site (Victoria)

Ever wonder what it took for InSite to win at the Supreme Court of Canada? Interested in the implications of InSite’s victory on our local communities?

We’ve invited speakers from the front lines of the struggle to share with us how community involvement, research, policy, and legal strategies led to the success of Canada’s most discussed harm reduction service.

Join us for this community event in honour of Community Solidarity for Harm Reduction week.

With speaker’s corner (hosted by Universities without Walls) — bring your two cents to share!
