VIRTUAL: History of Racism & War on Drugs


This training provides participants with an overview of the History of the War on Drugs in the United States, as well as data on its disproportionate impact on communities of color. Participants will examine current pitfalls to avoid - including white supremacy culture, saviorism and the non-profit industrial complex - that prevent people of color from accessing or receiving substance addiction services that are culturally appropriate, relevant and useful. Participants will identify action steps to better meet the needs of people of color who have been impacted by the war on drugs.
