A Vancouver-based cooperative dedicated to helping municipalities across North America combat the overdose crisis and reduce deaths in their communities.

Brave develops technology that helps communities organize around safer drug consumption. Our products are designed to connect people who use drugs to the help they need: an ally to talk to, a human supervisor to ensure they are safe, digital monitoring technology to detect when they’re in danger, a community of volunteer overdose responders, and professional emergency first responders. As a cooperative, our tech, design, focus, ownership and direction are all determined by the community growing around us.

Our latest Snapshot has more information on who we are, why we’re doing this work, and our approach.

Since our start in December 2015, Brave has joined forces with several other groups working on the same problem.
