As progressive young people, we believe that drug law in NSW needs urgent reform to stop the criminalisation of marginalised communities and reduce the harm drug use has on our communities. We believe drug law needs to be:
- JUST by stopping over-policing and criminalisation of First Nations people, people experiencing homelessness, young people, people from lower socio-economic backgrounds, and other marginalised groups
- FAIR by ending the War on Drugs, confronting the discourses that demonise drug users, and understanding the social factors that drive unsafe drug use
- SAFE by providing a structural, community-based approach to harm minimisation that makes solutions accessible to all
Join us for a panel discussion on the current state of drug law in NSW, its implications, and what we can do better.
The panel will be held on 12 March at 6:30pm at Sydney Trades Hall, 377 Sussex St Sydney.
Speakers include Alex Wodak, President of the Australian Drug Law Reform Foundation, and Miles Hunt, lawyer and drug law reform activist. More speakers to be announced.
Please contact Marcello on 0457 075 765 for more information. We would love to see you there!
