CSSDP chapters amplify our voices and our actions to create change in local, national and international drug policy.

Our chapters work in areas of social organization, knowledge dissemination, harm-reduction outreach, and event planning. CSSDP supports it’s chapters through chapter grants, outreach advice, event support, social media advertising and chapter coordination.

Together, chapters and the national board of directors work together to create top-notch resources to support disseminating fact-based education.
