Philadelphia Overdose Prevention Initiative
about us

OUR MISSION

Philadelphia Overdose Prevention Initiative (POPI) is working at the intersection of restorative justice, public health, horticulture and art/design to reduce the negative consequences of drug use—primarily overdose but also incarceration, unemployment, poverty, and trauma—by addressing their root causes. We are currently funded with Open Society Foundations Criminal Justice Fund Equity and Inclusion money, and fiscally sponsored by Culture Works Philadelphia.
