LGBT: What can drug policy reform learn from other social movements?
Tue 21 March 2017, 18:50 – 21:30 GMT
This event is a double bill.
What can drug law reform learn from successful social movements? Historically, big changes and a healthy shift in attitude occur when society takes the lead. What can LGBT and LGBTQIA teach those of us involved in drug policy reform?
Join us for the next live podcast recording for Stop and Search. We’ll be joined by:
Peter Tatchell - Human rights campaigner, Peter is well known for his work on LGBT and has also spoken on drug policy reform on many occasions.
Steve Topple - An independent journalist and social commentator, Steve has experience in a number of social movements.
Jane Slater - As project manager of Anyone's Child, Jane has worked in drug policy reform for many years with Transform Drug Policy Foundation.
And that's not it:
'Meet the mums legalising drugs'. A unique event hosted by Anyone’s Child and chaired by Guardian journalist Decca Aitkenhead. Donna May is a mother who is credited with changing Canadian attitudes to drug policy, and Anne-Marie Cockburn is the author of What Martha Did Next - they will be in discussion about their staggering stories and their unenviable experiences: Both Donna and Anne-Marie are bereaved parents who now make a powerful case for the legal regulation of drugs.
