GLIDE is a radically inclusive organization that is dedicated to alleviating suffering, loving unconditionally and breaking down cycles of poverty and marginalization.

UPCOMING EVENT

 

Join the Legacy Committee for a virtual event on April 29th that will provide an overview of Harm Reduction theory and practice, and outline the role GLIDE plays in providing these invaluable services. 

Harm reduction is comprised of a range of public health strategies designed to lessen the negative social and/or physical consequences associated with various human behaviors, both legal and illegal. Since the beginning of the AIDS epidemic, GLIDE has used harm reduction strategies to staunch the spread of disease and reduce stigma.

Ali Lazarus, GLIDE’s Syringe Access Services Coordinator, has many years of experience in the field of Harm Reduction. She will provide a comprehensive overview of the subject, and participate in a Q+A. She will also lead the group through a virtual Narcan training, a fast acting medication frequently used to counter the effects of opioid overdose.
