Fireside Project logo including hotline number: 623-473-7433

Students for Sensible Drug Policy is excited to partner with Fireside Project in the interest of peer support and psychedelic harm reduction! 

 

The mission of Fireside Project is, “to help people minimize the risks and fulfill the potential of their psychedelic experiences in ways such as providing compassionate, accessible, and culturally responsive peer support, educating the public, and furthering psychedelic research while embracing practices that increase equity, power-sharing, and belonging within the psychedelic movement.”

 

Through this collaboration, SSDP members in the United States can apply to be Fireside Project Ambassadors on their campuses. Being a Fireside Ambassador allows SSDPers to promote their peer support line on campus and in their communities, and includes online training about the project. Fireside Ambassadors commit to at least two hours a week of work including communicating with Fireside and SSDP staff regularly about their work. 

 

You can find more information about the role in the description and in the recording of our launch event and Q&A. The launch event featured Fireside Project Co-founders Joshua White and Hanifa Nayo Washington and their Operations and Outreach Director, Katie Bourque along with SSDP Director of Drug Education, Vilmarie Fraguada Narloch, and Operations Director, Luis Montoya ‘16.
