Let's Talk About Drugs

Tuesday, April 23, 2019 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

No pressure. No preaching. Challenge stigma around substance use and speak out against a culture of silence. Join OCADU Health Promoters Anisa and Alex for real chats about substances, the media, and risks associated with the stigmatization of substance use.

This workshop is informed by a Harm Reduction and Anti-oppressive practice (AOP).
