Last week the 10th National Harm Reduction Coconference, organized by the Harm Reduction Coalition, took place in Baltimore, drawing 1,000 activists, practitioners and experts—one notable attendee was US Drug Czar Michael Botticelli. To record the spirit of this diverse gathering, photographers worked to give delegates the opportunity to share their own messages about harm reduction. Here are a few of the results.
