  • PORTLAND, OR – Saturday, April 6 SSDP’s Drug Policy Activism Boot Camp in Portland This event is different from previous SSDP conferences and training events.  Instead of focusing on policy issues, this one day training focuses on specific skills such as: asking for money, telling your story, chapter management, and changing drug policies at the campus and state level.  Through highly engaging activities and role-playing, participants are guided through the principles of these skills and are given the opportunity to put them into practice right then and there.  More information.
