Through the 1990s, Vancouver experienced a drug crisis similar to the epidemic that Canada struggles with today. Travis Lupick, author of “Fighting for Space: How a Group of Drug Users Transformed One City’s Struggle with Addiction,” will recount how the city responded and what lessons should be applied now.
He’ll deliver a history of harm-reduction activism in Vancouver that connects the story in the book with the Downtown Eastside’s response to the fentanyl crisis today.
