Harm Reduction International is honoured to host and coordinate Lawyering on the Margins (LOTM) network for the period of 2020 – 2023. The network has brought together lawyers serving marginalised populations from across the world since 2011. The network was originally set up as a platform for lawyers to share best practices, challenges and supports.
The LOTM members work with people living with HIV, people who use drugs, sex workers, LGBTIQ+ people, people in prison, and other marginalised groups. Legal services are the core work for a majority of the LOTM members, , with complementary national/regional/international advocacy, campaigns, community mobilization, and strategic litigation.
