Stories from the field | Addressing resistance from locals and neighbours in Indonesia

In this video, Sam Nugraha talks about his daily reality, advocating for support with local leaders for his community-based harm reduction site

Let’s look again at a real-world example. This time Sam Nugraha takes us through his journey of a lifetime advocating for harm reduction. We often think about advocating for harm reduction on a national or international level, but the reality is often that resistance can be found much closer to the ground.
