Brooklyn SCS Town Hall

Council Members Stephen Levin (District 33) and Brad Lander (District 39) are hosting a town hall with our partner VOCAL-NY regarding the pilot of an Overdose Prevention Center (or Safer Consumption Space) in Brooklyn.

Community dialogue is important as NYC moves forward with the Mayor’s plan to implement four pilot centers. If you live in Council Member Levin or Lander’s district, please join us at the town hall (details below) to provide insight on harm reduction and how Overdose Prevention Centers are critical public health interventions in the fight to end overdose:

When: June 25th at 7-9 PM
Where: BAM Fisher 321 Ashland Pl Brooklyn, NY 1121

***From 7-7:30 PM there will be naloxone training from VOCAL-NY
