To our wonderful community,
In order to make this the best possible conference experience, Live4Lali and the Midwest Harm Reduction Institute at Heartland Alliance have decided to postpone the Midwest Harm Reduction Conference to Spring 2022. The Conference, titled The Moxie of Harm Reduction – Audacity & Common Sense, will feature diverse voices from our community and discuss the ever-expanding needs, trends, and future as a mighty and vital field.
At the center of this event will be the voices and experiences of people with lived experience, our friends who use drugs, and those who love and support them. Sessions will explore the complex challenges and opportunities we face across varying intersectionalities that touch our work and the systems that underpin it all. We will highlight the elements of providing lifesaving supplies/services while uplifting essential advocacy and policy strategies. We’ll address successes, mistakes, and lessons learned – because they all matter. Ultimately, we aim to ensure that all attendees leave with the knowledge, support, resources, and confidence to execute harm reduction work safely and thoughtfully.
We are looking for presentations for the 2022 Midwest Harm Reduction Conference, and we would love to learn from you! Sponsorship, exhibition, and presentation opportunities will be accessible for all interested. CMEs and CEUs will be available, too. More details will follow this message in the coming months.
Please submit your presentation proposals here. Live4Lali and MHRI are committed to ensuring that this conference keeps us connected and thriving.
Harm reduction is here to stay! Join us!
