As deaths in Vancouver reach an all-time high, a group of misfits, artists, and drug users opens a renegade safe injection site. The work of its staff and volunteers to save lives and give hope to a marginalized community is the subject of the documentary Love in the Time of Fentanyl, which will be screened Friday, March 24, in Windsor Hall.
The event is hosted by the School of Social Work, Recovery Education for Addictions and Complex Trauma (RE/ACT) Windsor-Essex, and the Downtown Windsor Community Collaborative. Attendees will learn more about consumption sites and the possible impact of Windsor’s new consumption and treatment services site on the community.
The screening begins at 6 p.m. and will be followed by a question-and-answer session with one of the film’s featured subjects, harm reduction worker Ronnie Grigg.
Admission is free but requires registration at DWCC.ca/events.
