With safe injection sites, Philadelphia, USA demonstrates a bold kind of leadership

*Eugene, Oregon Women’s Day March 2017

Today, January 23rd, 2018, the city has announced its courageous decision to try to prevent as many more deaths as possible. Philadelphia will support the opening of safe injection sites in Philadelphia … It’s a testament to how far [a] city [can] come in a year

If a safe injection site opens here, Philadelphia would be the first in the country to take this step – but also an undeniable marker of how far we still have to go … And you don’t have to look hard to find the best argument for safe injection sites. Stop by Lehigh and Kensington, where there’s a heroin encampment across the street from an elementary school. Talk to the people living there on the cold concrete. They will argue for a safe injection site just the way advocates do – not because they’re looking for an all-day party, but because they’d rather be anywhere else in the world than shooting heroin in front of children. But the reality is, now, that we’re a city where a heroin encampment blossoms in front of an elementary school, and we’ve decided that’s not acceptable. That’s not who we are. We decided to lead.
