About the Conference

The International Drug Policy Reform Conference is a biennial event that brings together people from around the world who believe that the war on drugs must end. More than 1,200 attendees representing over 50 countries joined us in St. Louis, MO in 2019. We are excited to bring the conference to Seattle, WA in 2021!

Reform attendees have the opportunity to spend three days interacting with people committed to finding alternatives to the war on drugs while participating in sessions given by leading experts from around the world. Don’t miss the opportunity to be a part of this event.

See what attendees said about the 2019 Reform Conference:

"I am leaving inspired, informed, and invigorated. The realities of the war on drugs are bleak, but the future of the drug policy movement is stronger."

"My first experience at Reform has been validating. I am so happy to know that I now have a family all over the world. I'm thankful for every conversation, laugh, and moment spent with everyone at this conference."

"I know I'm not the only one returning home newly anchored in the moral vision of a post-prohibition society."

"This was an amazing conference. It felt intentionally inclusive, open, and kind. Getting to share space with people who I’ve looked up to and learned from was so special."

"This is a powerful gathering and I’m walking away with a lot of hope."
