Drug Policy

At VOCAL-NY, we believe that people who use drugs should be treated with dignity and respect. And that if a person is experiencing problematic drug use, then they should have access to care and support, not stigmatization and criminalization.

Our drug policy goals include ensuring universal access to harm reduction services and drug treatment, ending overdose deaths, and reducing and eliminating criminal justice involvement for people who use drugs. 

VOCAL-NY’s drug policy work is carried out by our Users Union, which unites low-income people directly affected by the war on drugs.

Help us build a permanent home for justice, compassion & love.
