Greater Harlem Coalition has launched a petition on change.org to raise awareness regarding OnPoint's Supervised Injection Site location next to 9 Harlem schools and the gross underestimation of funding needed to mitigate the negative impact on the community. Decades of systemic oversaturation have packed Harlem with harm reduction programs, NYC's largest drug treatment programs, and homeless facilities. We need NYC and NYS to de-densify this structural oversaturation.
Despite the negative impact of OnPoint's site, New York State Senators and Assembly Members are actively reviewing bill S399 and A338 to legalize the injection site and to fund the operation with government funding.
We have launched a petition to allow your thoughts to be heard by these lawmakers. PLEASE help sign this petition on www.change.org/CommunityHarmReduction, and importantly, record in WHY YOU ARE SIGNING THE PETITION to reflect your personal experience of the site.
