The Power of Dignity: a Community Coversation on Substance Use

May 24, 2023 6:00 pm

Brooks Memorial Library

224 Main Street, Brattleboro, VT

Community Substance Use Response will host a conversation on May 24 at 7pm in the Main Reading Room of the Brooks Memorial Library, 224 Main St. Brattleboro.

A panel of CSUR members will participate in the conversation but their principal interest is to hear the diverse experiences and insights of other community members. CSUR does not have answers to the many problems, including overdose deaths, related to substance use, but we believe that solutions can emerge from community conversations grounded in mutual respect. We encourage everyone who joins us to exercise the “power of dignity” throughout the event.

Topics to explore together:

Substance Use
Substance Use Disorders
Harm Reduction
Youth, seniors, & everyone else
Experiencing crime
Experiencing homelessness
Accountability with compassion & non-judgment

Sponsored by: Voices of Hope; Turning Point; AIDS project of Southern VT; Building a Positive Community; and Meetinghouse Solutions

The program is free and open to the public and the venue is accessible to people in wheelchairs.
