Joy Fishman

Harm Reduction Advocate

Joy has a master’s in psychology and serves as the co-chair of the Miami committee of Human Rights Watch. She was married to the creator of naloxone, Jack Fishman, until his death in 2013. Her son Jonathan died of a heroin overdose in 2003, which spurred both her and her daughter, Julie Stampler, to become involved in drug policy reform. She also supports the Aleph Foundation, which serves families of incarcerated people, and the Doe Fund, a work reentry program for formerly incarcerated men.
