Event description
Do you believe that the so called ‘war on drugs’ has had devastating consequences and needs to end?

About this Event

Come and join our activist training day and become an effective campaigner for drug laws based on human rights, public health and global justice.

Anyone’s Child, Health Poverty Action and Support Don’t Punish are organising this training to explore how we can campaign together to show our politicians that the public increasingly supports progressive reform. We will provide you with all the skills and information you need to campaign for change.

The training will be suitable for new activists, people who care about public health, human rights and global justice but have never campaigned on drug policy before as well as those who want to brush up on the latest developments in international drug policy.

In this one day training we will be covering all the essential issues and tools you need including:

- Understand how the drug war devastates vulnerable communities across the world

- How to confidently make the case for harm reduction, decriminalisation and legal regulation

- How to find common ground with your MP

- How to link policy to the issues that matter to people

- How to respond to challenging concerns.

The session will be interactive and participatory while also providing practical advice and all the materials you need when campaigning.

Join the mass lobby on June 25th as we head to parliament in record numbers to call on MPs to end the drug war.

Help us end the end the drug war, protect human rights and public health and ensure global justice!

Anyone’s Child is a campaign of Transform. You can find out more about the Anyone’s Child Campaign here, learn how legal regulation can reduce global poverty and inequality with Health Poverty Action and explore the Support Don’t Punish Campaign.
