Project Inclusion is a comprehensive study into the ways in which specific laws and policies in policing, health care, and the court system directly undermine the health and safety of people who are homeless and living with substance use issues by trapping them in a cycle of criminalization. Pivot travelled to municipalities across British Columbia to hear directly from those affected and has gathered insight into how local laws and practices create harm by shaping lived experience. In essence, these laws and policies are setting people up to fail.
These recommendations are guided by the collective insight of people we spoke with, and are predicated on the truth that affected communities hold powerful visions for change. They provide a roadmap for policy- and lawmakers to dismantle the systems of harm and build a society grounded in human rights and justice. #ProjectInclusion
