Drug users too often live under a shadow, far from social services and medical help. That’s partially why Colorado lost 912 people to overdoses in 2016 alone. The advocates who successfully pushed the state to legalize syringe-exchange programs and who train Denver residents on how to administer the life-saving drug Naloxone are taking the fight for harm reduction to the next level, pushing to legalize supervised injection sites, or places where people can use drugs under the care of medical professionals. The Harm Reduction Action Center and the Drug Policy Alliance are teaming up for a Supervised Injection Community Forum, which will include a screening of The Caring Community: Ithaca and the Movement for Supervised Injection Facilities and a conversation — Sexy Pizza provided — on supervised injection sites. The evening runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 15, at the Denver Central Library, 10 West 14th Avenue Parkway.
