26th June marks the United Nations International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. Historically, this date has been used by governments to showcase “progress” in drug control in highly punitive terms.
This year, we will be focusing on the intersection of justice and AOD (Alcohol and Other Drug) issues in Victoria, with the launch of the Law Enforcement Action Partnership (LEAP).
We'll be hearing both from people with lived experience and experts in the field on justice issues faced by people who use drugs and what needs to happen to improve this relationship.
We want to know...
Is there a person or organisation we should get to do a presention? What topics do you want to hear about?
