Seattle Chapter of Urban Survivors Union represents Urban Survivors Unions beginnings. Shilo Murphy and Peoples Harm Reduction Alliance envisioned a national user union that was run by and for drug users and now here we are!!!
Urban Survivors Union in Seattle works with Seattle drug users (former and active). People who are at any stage of the drug use continuum. Drug users have as many different experiences as there are drug users. Most people use drugs with little consequence 90%). The rest of us, struggle and are stigmatized, marginalized and blamed for our experiences. At this time, Urban Survivors Union in Seattle is fighting to open the first Safe Injection Facility in the United States. They work hand in hand with People’s Harm Reduction Alliance in this fight to end the war on drugs and save lives.
