The Harm Reduction Action Center made these three harm reduction zines in collaboration with people who inject drugs in Denver, Colorado. We all agree that there isn’t enough honest drug education accessible to those who need it, so we pooled our collective knowledge around the topics most sought after by those in our community.
We made them in “zine” (mini magazine) format so they could be passed out to street-based substance users who may not have internet access, but who could carry a small booklet that they may find helpful.
While I initially authored these zines, they were reviewed by countless people who use drugs. All the artwork was contributed by talented Denver-based artists who use drugs. Here are some excerpts, as well as links to the complete zines.

If you’d like printable PDFs of any of the full zines to distribute at your local syringe service program—or just to any friends and neighbors who could use them—email firstname.lastname@example.org.
