Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
