South Los Angeles Crystal Meth Task Force - amaad institute
Wednesday, September 13, 2017
07:00pm - 09:00pm

One potentially life-saving outcome of the tragic death of Gemmel Moore last July is the burst of awareness about the silent crystal meth epidemic in Los Angeles’ black gay community. On Sept. 13, black gay and addiction recovery advocates will hold the first community South Los Angeles Crystal Meth Task Force, hosted by the AMAAD Institute, to focus on community engagement, prevention and addiction intervention for the LGBTQ community.

Moore, 26, was found dead of what the LA coroner originally determined was an accidental fatal overdose of crystal methamphetamine July 27 in the West Hollywood apartment of gay Democratic activist donor Ed Buck.
