Harm Reduction and Transformative Justice in Medicine

April 6, 2022
5:30-7:00 p.m. PT
Zoom (Virtual)

Join us for our second teach-in of UCSF REPAIR’s education series, Manifesting Medical Abolition: a conversation about state violence and health impacts. Manifesting Medical Abolition brings together a dynamic group of academics and community members to discuss foundational and emerging paths of abolition. 

This discussion will feature Andi Gentile and Javiera (Javi) Torres, two organizers and members of the Bay Area Transformative Justice Collective, in conversation with Dr. Shoshana (Shoshi) Aronowitz, a family nurse practitioner, community-engaged health services researcher, community organizer with the SOL Collective, and assistant professor in the Department of Family and Community Health at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. Prioritizing community care, this teach-in will illuminate the connections and divergences of health care, harm reduction, and transformative justice. The conversation will be centered on the theme of access and justice in a way that illustrates the entanglements of health and incarceration, particularly for people who use drugs, people who experience violence and sexual assault, and people who cause harm. We invite you to come sit with us in the intersection between care, violence, and transformation.
