In collaboration with Judson Memorial Church, National Harm Reduction Coalition launched Faith in Harm Reduction to build bridges between harm reduction and faith communities in order to develop leadership, strengthen harm reduction advocacy efforts, and build environments supportive of harm reduction policies and practices.
Where faith and harm reduction meet to imagine the movement for justice with people who use drugs.

Faith & Harm Reduction
Faith in Harm Reduction is the only program in the country dedicated to building capacity and mobilizing communities at the intersection of harm reduction and faith-based organizing. Born from conversations with communities of faith, harm reduction organizations, and unions of people who use drugs throughout the United States, this program fills a unique role as connector, community mobilizer, and capacity builder.

Focused on Our Mission. Led by Our Purpose.
Faith in Harm Reduction is on a mission to strengthen support for harm reduction messages, policies and practices that uphold the divinity and dignity of people who use drugs. We aim to strengthen spiritual resources, health, and well-being for communities affected by the opioid crisis.
We work in partnership with people who use drugs and community leaders to:
Advance liberation, health, and wholeness for communities impacted by overdose, trauma, stigma of substance use, and racialized drug policy.
Expand support for harm reduction messages, practices, and policies through resource development, capacity building, events, and community mobilization.
Grow spiritual community, co-create theological and liturgical language which speaks to lived experience
Build collective & integrative practices that transform the imprint of trauma and oppression on people who use drugs.
Reshape the moral narrative on substance use through education, messaging, and community building – centering the divinity and dignity of people who use drugs.
