Congratulations to the 2020 SSDP Award Nominees

Congratulations to the 2020 SSDP Award Nominees

Every year at our annual conference, Students for Sensible Drug Policy recognizes the exceptional achievements of our members, chapters, alumni, and allies. Because we cannot gather in person this year, we will be presenting this year’s awards via video on Saturday, March 28th on our Youtube channel. We will be organizing a virtual watch party on social media for the awards ceremony and the announcement of our Board of Directors election results. Stay tuned for more information next week. Congratulations to all nominees!
