We are replacing the disastrous war on drugs with policies rooted in evidence, compassion, and human rights. Our 5,000 active members, made up of young people and students, mobilize from 300 schools around the globe to make change from the campus to the United Nations.
We do this work because the war on drugs is a war on us.
Change your campus. Change your world.
Global Policy Reform
We ensure active and meaningful youth participation of youth and youth-related organizations in the development, implementation and evaluation of drug policies and programs.
We reform campus drug policies to replace detrimental punishment with supportive, life-saving responses to complex situations.
Harm Reduction Action
We expand harm reduction in our communities through campus action and partnerships with harm reduction service providers.
Just Say Know
We deliver evidence based peer-to-peer drug education that empowers young people to navigate the complex choices regarding drugs and drug use.
