The day Shilo Murphy found his friend dead from an overdose, he resolved to change his life.
He wouldn’t quit drugs. He liked how heroin made him feel. But he wanted to improve the lives of drug users.
"My experience of having a close friend die was that I wasn't going to take it anymore,” Murphy told KUOW’s Ross Reynolds. “It being the conditions we lived under, the discrimination we felt, the constant violence towards us.”
