SOLID believes in the value of all people and that everyone has a right to housing, support, a livable income and appropriate health care – including access to safer injection and smoking equipment, and safer consumption environments.
We know that for many, poverty, racism, social isolation, trauma, mental health problems and other inequalities are at the root of illicit drug use. We address this reality with empathy, compassion, education, support, harm reduction and acceptance.
We are people who use drugs, helping each other to be stronger, to be empowered, and to live the lives we want to live.
We know that practical harm reduction strategies in our own lives and in our communities help to improve our well-being, challenge personal and systemic injustice, and ultimately save lives.
If you use illicit drugs (or used to), you are automatically eligible to be a member of SOLID. If you are not a drug user, we welcome the support of allies.
