It’s important for us to make the Reform Conference a safe space and one of accessibility. Please look for and note the following on-site:

Anti-Harassment Policy

We are committed to providing a conference experience where everyone is treated with respect, free from discrimination or harassment based on gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disabilities, physical appearance, ethnicity, nationality, race, age, religion, or other protected category. Discrimination or harassment of conference participants, including exhibitors, will not be tolerated in any form. Conference participants violating this rule may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Thank you and we value your attendance at the 2019 International Drug Policy Reform Conference.

All-Gender Restrooms

In our continued effort to make the Reform Conference as inclusive as possible for those individuals who do not identify as cisgender, several of the restrooms within the conference space have been labeled as “All Gender Restrooms.” These restrooms can be used by all attendees, regardless of their gender identity or expression.

Lactation Room 

The Zephyr Rocket Room (located on the 2nd floor of the convention space) is available for any attendees who would like a private space in order to breastfeed or pump. However, you are free to breastfeed wherever you choose on the hotel premises.  

Fragrance-free Policy

To be respectful of those with allergies and environmental sensitivities, we ask that you please refrain from wearing strong fragrances.

Relaxation Lounge

Feel free to head over to the Pegram Room on-site at the conference to take a load off, check your e-mail or just chill out for a moment!


We've partnered with Thisten – an audio-to-text platform that transcribes conversations in real time. This year’s three conference plenary sessions will be accessible through live captioning on Thisten iOS | Android.
