How can I connect to advocacy in my area to support SCS?

Local advocates work together as part of a national network to learn from legislative wins and losses, low-threshold models and safer drug use in syringe service programs, and to offer support. The best way for you to get involved is to connect locally to what is already happening! We’ve listed a few websites to connect with coalitions we know of below. If you don’t see anything in your area, please connect with your local SSP to learn more about work that may already be happening.
