Bring Harm Reduction Leaders to Your Event
Sharing knowledge is key to bringing harm reduction strategies to scale.
Our leaders often present at conferences, summits, training events, program launches and press briefings around the country. We live to collaborate, educate, and inspire. If you’re looking to lead the charge to change, we’d love to share harm reduction strategies with your audience, team or community.
Give your audience the gift of knowledge, power and understanding. Event attendees and participants emerge with new ideas, support, and a renewed drive to create change.
Your audience will:
develop an inclusive world view that fosters community and connection
see the world through a more empathetic lens
gain a new sense of equity and justice
Key Harm Reduction Topics
The topics that we speak about are grounded in evidence and driven by passion. Whether you want to educate your audience about the basics of harm reduction, or facilitate a workshop to build empathetic communication skills, we will create a session to meet your group’s needs.
