Myseum of Toronto: Confinement and Contagion: Health and Harm Reduction Inside of Canadian Prisons – Informational Workshop

April 12 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

This workshop, led by Sena Hussain and Prisoners with HIV/AIDS Support Action Network (PASAN), will explore the impacts of unequal access to health care and harm reduction measures that prisoners face across Turtle Island. We will also look at how COVID-19 has stressed the carceral system in unprecedented ways and how this pandemic has manifested in creating great harm to people inside. A discussion of an article in Cell Count, a health and harm reduction resource for prisoners, will then take place to look at the experiences and mindset of someone who has been carrying out a life sentence to create further understanding of the prison experience. Participants will discuss ways that people on the outside can be in solidarity with those fighting for their rights on the inside.
