Join the Harm Reduction Movement

Harm Reduction is a movement for social justice built on belief in and respect for the rights of people who use drugs. We grow stronger together. Meet the Harm Reduction community.

If you love people who use drugs and want them to have access to programs that support their health and dignity, join the movement. All are welcome here.
