One person dies every nineteen minutes of an overdose in the United States. The opioid epidemic is claiming the lives of our children, parents, friends, neighbors, and loved ones. It does not discriminate.

Join VOCAL-WA, Capitol Hil Community Council, and Seattle First Baptist Church on March 22, for a screening of Everywhere But Safe. This 34 minute documentary explores public drug use, and the role harm reduction and supervised consumption spaces can play in saving lives. Supervised consumption spaces are places where people who are living with substance use can come inside, and inject pre-obtained drugs under medical supervision, with connection to other necessary services. Such sites exist worldwide. They have been shown to reduce fatal overdose, reduce public drug use, and reduce transmission of disease.

Following the film, a panel will discuss harm reduction, supervised consumption spaces, and how we can support evidence-based approaches to save lives and reduce harm.

There will be limited free parking in the lot behind the Church, at 1111 Harvard Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122
