Street Outreach Delivery involves driving to various outdoor areas where members of our community live and socialize to deliver critical resources and meals. Due to the nature of the opportunity, this is only available to those who have already done delivery or those who make arrangements with us to shadow someone who has done delivery. While giving out meals and resources is a lot of the work, bonding and building rapport with folks is probably the bulk of this work. Therefore the delivery opportunities are those which would require someone willing to commit to multiple delivery needs over a period of time.
PPE will be provided and we will follow social distancing guidelines as set forth by the CDC.
Central Arkansas Harm Reduction Project is a grassroots organization based in Little Rock, Arkansas created by and for people impacted by the War on Drugs. We stand side-by-side with people in our community to offer love and support.
We believe people who use drugs are deserving of love, respect, support, and healthcare--just like everyone else!
The stigmatization and criminalization of drug use stops people from requesting or receiving services that could save or improve their lives.
We also believe that drug use in our society is inevitable, and that using drugs is not a moral failing. We hope to prevent HIV, Hepatitis, and overdose deaths in our community by meeting people where they’re at, and offering our services with no strings attached.
The War on Drugs hurts many people. It is helpful only to those who profit off the systems of mass incarceration and border control. We recognize that this war has and continues to disproportionately target Black communities.
These policies have resulted in lives being spent in prison and families being separated. We are committed to fighting against racialized criminalization laws and demanding justice for people of color who have been incarcerated because of them.
Harm reduction is an act of radical love! No one deserves to die or suffer because they use drugs.
