Ask Ann: An Evening of Social Justice and Community Building

In 2018, we hosted Ann Livingston, co-founder of VANDU and the Overdose Prevention Society, in Ottawa to learn from her experience organizing with people who use drugs. Watch here to learn from Livingston’s experience working towards drug user liberation, which includes a framework for addressing community needs, listening to local knowledge, and traditions for remembering those we have lost.


Thank you Ann, for your generosity, love, and tenacity in this fight for social justice.


Thanks also to Bobby J for opening the event by acknowledging our presence and work on unceded and unsurrendered Algonquin territory, and Leila for hosting the interview.
