A failed global War on Drugs has had a devastating effect on our communities. The criminalization of drug use has led to tragic rates of disease and overdose and has needlessly cost countless lives across Canada. Drug prohibition creates and perpetuates inequality, discrimination, and stigma by driving drug use underground and fueling a robust street market of deadly toxicity.
Pivot works with people who use drugs to create law and policy changes that will meet their most pressing needs, including timely access to a range of health services, harm reduction programs, and safe supply options in their own communities. We are working to hold governments to an evidence-based approach to drug policy that promotes health and human rights: first and foremost, this means amplifying the calls of people who use drugs for decriminalization and a safe supply of drugs.
