“The polls were fun, the lack of stuffiness is always appreciated, the way it was established as a safe space to share and the consistent reiteration via vulnerable sharing.”

Attendee of our harm reduction certification course

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for taking the time to talk to my classes today. I have a strong feeling that you not only opened people's eyes, your presentation will give people hope in their personal lives. The work you all do is just incredible, and the kindness and authenticity you bring to the presentation makes it that much better."
