The late Western Aboriginal Harm Reduction Society (WAHRS) president, Tracey Morrison, talks about a holistic and human rights approach to harm reduction. Tracey discusses her involvement with the Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users (VANDU) and WAHRS. Through her personal experience as an Indigenous person who uses drugs (IPWUD), Tracey emphasizes the significance of approaching harm reduction “from the heart” — with a commitment to harm reduction values, educating others about the strength of persons who use drugs and abilities, and maintaining efforts to uphold the human rights of Indigenous persons who use drugs IPWUD.
