We suffered an indescribable loss this past weekend with the death of our friend and beloved community advocate, Jason Crowell. We are raising funds to cover the costs of Jason’s cremation and to support Jason’s partner with rent and other living expenses during this terrible time. Any contributions, no matter the amount, are greatly appreciated.
As many know, Jason was a tireless community advocate and harm reductionist. He dedicated himself to supporting and building power with people most marginalized and dehumanized in our world. It is impossible to capture his profound impact on so many lives over the years, but to name just a few of the ways he showed up: Jason was the Outreach Director of the Sex Workers and Allies Network, a Substance Abuse Counselor with Cornell-Scott Hill Health Center, and a recent graduate from Southern Connecticut State University’s Master of Social Work program with plans to start his Master of Public Health this fall.
He was passionate about ending the war on drugs, opening safe injection sites, and uprooting stigma against drug users and other oppressed people. He fought, humbly and unapologetically, with and for his communities.
We will miss, every day, Jason’s compassionate and courageous spirit. He was a beacon of hope and love to many. We know Jason can never be replaced, but we will do our best to carry forward his legacy and honor his visions of justice and a better world for all.
Lastly, please remember to take care of yourself and each other during this time. As Jason taught us, we - the community - take care of each other. We have what it takes to support one another through this time and beyond.
