8th National Harm Reduction Conference: Harm Reduction Beyond Borders!

November 18th--21st
Austin, TX

The 8th National Harm Reduction Conference will bring together approximately 2,000 drug users, ex-drug users, researchers, sex workers, social workers, doctors, politicians and community organizers from around the country and abroad to share perspectives on Harm Reduction.

The National Harm Reduction Conference is the only multidisciplinary gathering in the United States focusing on the health of individuals and communities impacted by drug use. The purpose of the conference is to inspire and explore new perspectives on incorporating Harm Reduction into direct services, public policy and individual lives.

This year's lifting of the ban on federal funding for syringe exchange promises for a renewed and dynamic collaboration between public health officials and grassroots organizations. This is an opportunity to uphold the right to health and dignity of this marginalized community. We hope you will join us in Austin, Texas in our efforts to combat these public health emergencies and implement real and lasting change.
