Louise Vincent MPH
Executive Director @NC Survivors Union
Louise Vincent is Director of the Urban Survivors Union in North Carolina, USA and the National Drug User Union, an organization of former and active drug users who have come together to provide services for a community that is under-represented and underserved. She has first-hand knowledge of the communities that sell and use drugs and works to educate this community regarding harm reduction. Louise is passionate about the need for drug user networks and unions to engage with policymakers at state and national levels to correct misconceptions about people who use drugs (PWUD). She provides valuable insight on policies that both help and hinder engagement and retention of PWUD in harm reduction services and the impact that inequity of services between states has on this community.
