The Harm Reduction Coalition is seeking article submissions for "The Anonymous Issue" of HRC's newsletter, "Harm Reduction Communication. The Anonymous Issue is a forum for drug users to discuss issues of importance to them in anonymity.

HRC is especially interested in topics related to user involvement in the harm reduction movement, be it as paid employees, volunteers or participants, including the contradictions that face a movement that seeks the participation of active drug users, yet has a hard time engaging in a public dialogue about what this means; the problems active use causes in the workplace; the reluctance of funders to channel money to people who are viewed as criminals by the larger society; the struggles coworkers and administrators have in addressing issues that require a new language and way of thinking. HRC seeks to generate a dialogue, not solely to criticize, but to generate creative solutions and develop a vision where harm reduction can live up to its promise.

Send commentary, personal accounts, "how to" pieces, interviews, research reports, artwork and anything else that comes to mind (except poetry), up to 4000 words, by January 31, 2003, to [email protected], text double-spaced in MS Word or Corel Word Perfect, artwork in Photoshop, Illustrator EPS, Quark XPress or Adobe Pagemaker. Submissions can also be sent by mail to: Paul Cherashore, Publications Coordinator, Harm Reduction Coalition, 22 West 27th Street, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10001.

Call (202) 213-6376 ext. 16 or e-mail [email protected] for further information. Visit HRC and learn about their December 1-4 conference in Seattle at http://www.harmreduction.org online.
