Student Government Guide
More than 120 student governments around the country have already taken a stand and called on Congress to repeal the Higher Education Act’s Drug Provision. Your student government can join this growing student-led movement by passing a resolution and sending it to your legislators in Washington.
Here are some resources to help you prepare for passing the resolution:
