The VOCAL NY team has been profiled by Radix Media. The profile includes an interview with Co-Executive Director Alyssa Aguilera about the work VOCAL-NY is doing in the community.
We’re doing a lot of work around affordable housing and homelessness which is obviously a major concern for pretty much every New Yorker. We want to make sure that the conversation around “affordability” includes people who are very low-income, as well as people who need supportive services. We’re also focused on addressing the rising rates of overdose deaths in NYC—we want to get Naloxone in as many hands as possible, and also push the city to adopt Supervised Injection Facilities so that people who use drugs can be safe and healthy.
