Dear Friends: Harm Reduction Coalition is pleased to announce the 9th National Harm Reduction Conference to be held November 15–18, 2012 in Portland, Oregon at the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront Hotel. The National Harm Reduction Conference is the largest harm reduction gathering in the country, bringing together over 1,000 people who serve on the front lines of our nation’s largest public health emergencies such as problematic drug use, mass incarceration, HIV, hepatitis C, overdose, lack of housing and inadequate healthcare. The theme of this year's conference is “From Public Health to Social Justice”. The conference will place special emphasis on reconnecting the harm reduction movement to its roots. Communities, especially the drug using community, need to be the central driving force behind harm reduction. Nationally and globally, harm reduction is increasingly being reduced to a series of interventions such as HIV testing, syringe exchange, and access to medicationassisted drug treatment. Although, these are critical services, harm reduction did not begin as a set of isolated practices and interventions. Rather it evolved of communities insisting on full social inclusion and drug user rights. Services void on these values sell the history and spirit of harm reduction short. Together, we can commit to making social inclusion and social justice for drug users a global priority. The 9th National Harm Reduction Conference will provide an important opportunity to engage in dialogue, share experiences and formulate our strategy for action. Join us! See you in Portland.

Allan Clear Executive Director

Safety Disclosure Statement While the conference is a place to challenge ideas, philosophies and approaches for reducing drug-related harm, it is not a forum for judging any individual’s personal choices about drug use. The Harm Reduction Coalition requests and expects, but cannot guarantee, that attendees’ confidentiality will be respected and upheld.


9th National Harm Reduction Conference F ROM PUBLIC HEALTH TO SOCIAL JUSTICE

CONFERENCE OBJECTIVES • P rovide a safe forum for the exchange of information, ideas, and strategies for incorporating harm reduction into direct services, public policy, and individual lives • Offer technical information on program development and implementation • Present current examples of effective harm reduction services and policies • Encourage a dialogue between individuals from diverse disciplines, backgrounds, and personal experiences, including drug users and those with a history of drug use • Explore and analyze our own attitudes about and relationships to drugs and drug users

9th National Harm Reduction Conference F ROM PUBLIC HEALTH TO SOCIAL JUSTICE

OPEN SPACE AT THE 9TH NATIONAL HARM REDUCTION CONFERENCE

Creating Space for Critical Conversations In recent years, there has been a growing interest in collecting the invaluable conversations that often happen outside of our traditional conference sessions—you know, the ones in the hotel lobby, after (and during) sessions, out to dinner, on the soccer field, at the bar, etc. We have also heard from many of you that rigorous, timely conversations need to happen given the influence that medicalization, reductions and shifts in funding, and persistent and escalating social and economic inequity is having on our work. So we are offering something new at this conference, a simultaneous Open Space where conference participants create your own agenda. What will actually happen? On Thursday afternoon in Salon E, we will open a conference Commons: a space where participants can invite each other into conversations and, through Graphic Recording, make visible the connections, insights, strategies and actions that we create together. Salon E will be available every afternoon for these conversations. In addition, participants will be invited to bring back insights and actions that emerge from those spontaneous conversations that happen at the bar, dinner, etc. The process will be lightly structured through a practice called Open Space Technology, where anyone who takes personal responsibility for hosting a conversation can announce its time and location on the Commons wall. Whoever is drawn to that conversation can participate. Highlights, insights and actionable steps are by the conversation group and returned to the Harvest wall. Follow-up actions are up to conference participants. This process is not designed to create an action plan or recommendations for Harm Reduction Coalition. This is an opportunity to find each other around common passion and possibility and to take responsibility for carrying the work forward.

We invite our elders to bring the wisdom of our origins, failures and successes…our grassroots leaders and conference participants who are directly affected by structural inequity to keep us grounded in purpose…our emerging leaders to bring their innovation, impatience and willingness to keep the torch burning…our thinkers and researchers to offer edgy questions as well as analysis. Most important, it is an invitation for everyone to draw on our harm reduction principles in order to create an environment together where open, honest conversation can allow us to move forward wisely.

9th National Harm Reduction Conference F ROM PUBLIC HEALTH TO SOCIAL JUSTICE

Design Team & Hosts Harm Reduction Coalition staff members Michael Everett, Skylar Panuska, Anistla Rugama and Paula Santiago have been designing this process with Allen Frimpong, Kelly McGowan, and Avril Orloff who will be the Open Space hosts throughout the conference. Allen Kwabena Frimpong (a.kwabena@gmail.com), formerly a capacity building provider with Harm Reduction Coalition, is presently the Program Manager for Living Cities Integration Initiative in Newark, NJ. Allen is passionate about the health and well-being of individuals and families in poverty and works tirelessly to empower and bring resources to grassroots change efforts in the US and abroad. Kelly McGowan (GoingUpstream.net) first joined movement building efforts for racial and economic justice through the housing committee of ACT-UP, syringe exchange activism in NYC and queer and transgender rights. Kelly offers participatory learning, strategy development, decision-making and action practices to social change organizations, groups and movements. Lisa Moore (lisadee@sfsu.edu) is co-founder and active board member of Harm Reduction Coalition, former member of Prevention Point, San Francisco, and an associate professor of Community Health Education at San Francisco State University. Lisa trains and supports our emerging leaders to practice public health with a social justice framework. Avril Orloff (avrilorloff.com) is a graphic facilitator who draws out people’s ideas by creating a visual record of dialogue. Avril combines words with images to distill the essence of a conversation and reveal the big picture, both literally and figuratively. Avril is happiest when she can add visual clarity to groups as they resolve complex issues and chart a clear path forward.

“Open Space is based in the belief that organizations and communities run on passion and responsibility. It allows groups of any size to self-organize around what they really care about to get things done.” —Peg Holman

Mission Statement

The Harm Reduction Coalition (HRC) is a national advocacy and capacity building organization that promotes the health and dignity of individuals and communities impacted by drug use. Harm Reduction Coalition advances policies and programs that help people address the diverse effects of drug use including overdose, HIV, hepatitis C, addiction and incarceration. We recognize that the structures of social inequality impact the lives and options of affected communities differently, and work to uphold every individual’s right to health and well-being, as well as their competence to protect themselves, their loved ones, and their communities.
