The Mission Statement Of North Carolina Survivors Union 

NCSU is a community-led statewide grassroots organization made up of people who are directly impacted by drug use. Our mission is to improve the lives of people who have been targeted by the war on drugs by:

1. organizing,  growing and strengthening community-led grassroots groups.

2. educating, mobilizing and advocating for policies and programs grounded in harm reduction , healing, and disability justice. 

3. providing direct services in areas where high-risk communities are denied even the most basic services.

Our programmatic activities include running a user-led syringe service program (SSP) and community space in Greensboro, NC, community organizing, harm reduction -based education and leadership development, civic engagement, and harm reduction mutual support groups.
