Why a North Philly meeting about injection sites erupted into a shouting match

The panel discussion and Q&A session at the the church on Seventh Street near Girard was convened to give the community a chance to explore the proposed CUES.

    Why a North Philly meeting about injection sites erupted into a shouting match
    Devin Reaves stood up in his front row seat and issued a dare about injection sites to the city councilpersons in front of him. "If there's something else we can do that can lower overdose deaths," said Reaves, a recovery advocate, addressing Councilman David Oh and Councilwoman Cindy Bass, "[then] let's do that."
