CSSDP wants to support you to attend the Reform Conference!

This coming November, the International Drug Policy Reform Conference is taking place in Washington, D.C. For three days, the conference will bring together students, activists, scholars, researchers, and public officials around topics including criminal justice reform, cannabis reform, harm reduction, movement building, international drug policy, psychedelics, and youth policy. Click here to see the final program.

In addition, there will be a simulation of the upcoming United Nations General Assembly Special Session on the World Drug Problem which is set to take place in New York City in April 2016. This Model UNGASS will help students become familiar with global drug policy reform and serve as a platform to amplify the voices of youth drug policy reformers.

CSSDP will have several representatives at the Reform Conference, and we are looking to provide support in the form of a bursary to other Canadian students and youth who will be attending the conference. Preference will be given to applicants who are actively involved in a CSSDP chapter, as well as those who can contribute to our coverage by writing a blog post on a session or day of the conference or helping out with tabling or social media. As well, participating in the Model UNGASS held by SSDP is a requirement to receive this funding. Bursary amounts will be partly determined by your expected cost for attending the conference. If you have any questions or concerns, please send an email to CSSDP Co-Chair Gonzo Nieto at gonzo@cssdp.org.

The bursary application can be found here.
