Any Positive Change - AZ Harm Reduction Conference 2019
Arizona's first harm reduction conference
About this Event
Please join us for Arizona’s first ever Harm Reduction Conference! This is the only multidisciplinary conference in the state focused on improving the health of people who use drugs and other bodies deemed “criminal.” This conference will serve as a space to bring together local and national experts, community members, health and treatment professionals, and those directly impacted by substance use to hold conversations about harm reduction at every level. Speakers will ask participants to critically examine the systems and institutions connected to illness, chaotic drug use, poverty, and isolation. We will envision together a future Arizona where every person has access to the tools and care they need in order to be physically well, emotionally supported and spiritually buoyed. The theme of this year’s conference is “Any Positive Change.” This sentiment emphasizes the need to be relentless in improving the everyday lives of our community members while demanding systemic change to national, state and local policies. “Any Positive Change” means that we meet people where they are at, and we don’t leave them there.
