Students for Sensible Drug Policy’s 2019-2020 program year ends today. Through the challenges of the global COVID-19 pandemic, upending of campus life, and rapid shifts in change-making strategies, we’ve seen our network members step up and reinvent the ways we organize. In the last two months we had a stellar virtual conference in which our global network could truly come together for three days of cutting-edge educational content, a virtual lobby day for US members who demanded the US Federal Government hold police accountable, and our biggest Support. Don’t Punish. global action day with members participating from 13 countries.
Campuses are being reshaped as quickly as every other aspect of modern life. We’re facing new challenges, but we know that the resilient, flexible, and creative young people of SSDP will remain on the cutting edge of this movement, driving us toward a more sensible future. Over the next year, we’ll continue to reform drug policies; advance racial justice; envision a world where community-led responses replace policing of people who use drugs; provide mentorship to our members in the emerging psychedelic fields; and fight for a just, equitable, and peaceful world.
We’re in a moment where radical change is more possible than ever before, but we can’t do this without your support. Will you make a gift today and help us start our next program year strong?
