Sad about missing @AMERSA_tweets but glad I was able to be able to join this from Portland, OR!

We can't talk about improving treatment for SUDs without taking about the effects of racism—grateful to learn from @DrAyanaJordan and @TracieMGardner.
"Black recovery and Black harm reduction isn't just about drug policy but the web of harm done to Black communities. It seeks to address oppressive systems keeping communities broken and disempowered" @TracieMGardner
"The overlay of COVID maps exactly to the cross-system of assault to Black communities. The work to dismantle and replace is only now beginning" wow @TracieMGardner, so grateful to learn from you. Thank you @MGH_SUDs for sponsoring.
"We cant have recovery without understanding racism and internalized racism. When the very reality is more painful than recovery there is nothing to recover TO" the incomparable @DrAyanaJordan
"Don't look down on people who don't want to participant in AA when it was developed by two White men, centering and valuing the experiences of White men. Sending people who don't want to go to AA back to their probation officer is *racist*" @DrAyanaJordan YES
"We need to support community action and community efforts to keep Black people safe while they are using drugs because the risk is too high to have police involved in anti-racist recovery movements" @DrAyanaJordan 👏
"Anti-racism has to include advocacy to make sure our own tax dollars are adequately funding BIPOC scientists that study treatments that actually reach URM populations. We need to ensure that we are adequately funded to do our research. This is reparations." @DrAyanaJordan
