Video from March 8 council committee meeting discussing SCS

On March 8, 2018, the Seattle City Council's Committee on Housing, Health, Energy, and Workers Rights discussed the path forward to create a safe consumption space (SCS) in Seattle. 

There were two portions of the meeting dedicated to discussing SCS, public testimony and a discussion of the SCS Feasibility Study. We've documented both below for your convenience.

Statement on Seattle City Council Hearing on Creating a Safe Consumption Space

Today, the Seattle City Council's Committee on Housing, Health, Energy, and Workers Rights discussed the path forward to create a safe consumption space (SCS) in Seattle. SCSs are safe, clean spaces where people can use previously obtained drugs under the supervision of healthcare professionals who provide support, safe and sterile equipment, and overdose prevention. They are a proven and positive solution that reduce deaths and medical issues, restore public safety and community spaces, and connect people who use drugs with resources for treatment.
