Today, the Meals Team kicked it into high gear and served a delicious #ValentinesDay meal of prime rib, mashed potatoes, vegetables, fruit and hand-dipped chocolate-covered strawberries! Showing #unconditionallove to our folks. Happy V-Day to all! #givingback #foodjustice @paulfleming_restaurateur @hospitalityhousesf @tndcsf GLIDE wishes you a very #HappyValentinesDay. We invite you to think about love beyond romantic love; to consider #unconditionallove & what that might look like. #SafeInjectionSites are part of that vision for the #Tenderloin and for people suffering from the #opiodcrisis across the nation.

With Director Barbara Garcia’s announcement over a week ago, SF is now poised to be the first city in the country to open a SIS. Given these recent developments, we have re-posted excerpts from an earlier interview with Paul Harkin, manager of GLIDE Harm Reduction, who speaks to the scope of the problem and to the arguments in favor of SIS as a viable, compassionate & rational approach.

Many thanks to Felicia for making this important film accessible and affordable for anyone who wanted to join, and to the director Nancy Buirski for joining us for the occasion.

As our nation continues to engage with recent mass social justice movements, namely #BlackLivesMatter and #MeToo, this film is especially timely and powerful. We are grateful to everyone who came to GLIDE to experience and discuss it together in community.
