The U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are collaborating on a project aimed at 1) learning how criminal justice professionals across the country are currently implementing harm minimization programs and 2) developing educational resources to further partnership efforts between public health and public safety to enhance the provision of harm minimization programs.
BJA and CDC have enlisted the Institute for Intergovernmental Research (IIR) and the Advocates for Human Potential, Inc., to convene practitioners in the field for a series of virtual roundtables to learn:
- If or how they are implementing harm reduction programs and policies.
- What successes they have.
- What challenges they face.
- What resources or materials will improve their efforts.
To support the roundtables, the Institute for Intergovernmental Research (IIR) kindly requests nominations from programs that are willing to share what their agency/system is currently doing in the field of harm reduction or programs that may not have implemented harm reduction strategies in their work but are eager to learn more.
Email Chris Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information no later than October 16th to express interest in the discussion.
