Harm Reduction with Gary Langis

Hi! It’s Julie. This is Podcast #3.

Longtime local harm reduction advocate Gary Langis (soft “g” in Langis) is my guest. He talks about what harm reduction is, how far we’ve come in protecting those who are marginalized in society and how far we have yet to go. (Hint: we still have a long way to go.)

If you’d like more information on harm reduction, here’s a couple links to some helpful sites; one is national, one is local.
