Submit Abstract | 2020 National Harm Reduction Conference (Due 03/2/2020)

The National Harm Reduction Conference honors a participatory planning process. At each conference, the program is abstract-driven to address the most important issues and most innovative solutions in harm reduction at the time. Proposals are submitted by conference attendees, who together represent the varied aspects of harm reduction work in the US and abroad. Harm Reduction Coalition is currently seeking abstracts for the 2020 national conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

We encourage submissions that represent all aspects of harm reduction work from grassroots organizing and programming to policy and research. View website for more information.
