More info

Learning Collaboratives are a direct result of insights gained from community engagement conducted in the spring of 2023. Collaborating with Save Lives Oregon Leadership Team partners, NW Instituto Latino, The Miracles Club, and Siletz Community Health, we conducted listening sessions with Black, Native, and Latinx service providers and peers to better understand culturally-specific values, beliefs, practices, barriers, stigmas related to harm reduction, as well as ways the Save Lives Oregon initiative can better support organizations providing harm reduction services to communities most impacted by the War on Drugs. A recurring theme from the community listening sessions was the desire for more resource sharing and collaborative platforms.
