Fighting for Space
Fighting for Space: Travis Lupick in Ottawa on March 16 (Mar 2018)
Travis Lupick, author of Fighting for Space: How a Group of Drug Addicts Transformed One City's Struggle with Addiction, takes part in an event around his book in Ottawa on March 16:
Through the 1990s, Vancouver experienced a drug crisis similar to the epidemic that Canada struggles with today. Author and journalist Travis Lupick will recount how the city responded and what lessons should be applied now. He'll deliver a history of harm-reduction activism in Vancouver that connects the story in the book with the Downtown Eastside’s response to the fentanyl crisis today.
Lupick's presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with interdisciplinary experts, activists, and people with lived experience.
