EVENT: 2019 NYC Support. Don’t Punish Global Day of Action
Leading Organizations: The NY NGO Committee on Drugs, Harm Reduction Coalition, Treatment Action Center, Drug Policy Alliance, Families for Sensible Drug Policy, StoptheDrugWar, Students for Sensible Drug Policy, and others
Support.Don’t Punish is held around the world every year to coincide with the United Nations’ International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. Last year the campaign was held in over 200 cities, across over 150 countries! The SDP campaign aims to promote drug policy reform, and to change laws and policies which impede access to harm reduction interventions with a prioritization of public health and human rights.
This year we will gather outside United Nations Headquarters and call on UN Secretary-General António Guterres’ newly formed UN System Coordination Task Team for global leadership to address the ongoing global health and human rights crisis among people who use drugs.
The New York event will be held following the launch of UNODC’s World Drug Report. Please JOIN US at Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza, East 47th Street and 1st Avenue, at 1:30pm June 26th, opposite United Nations headquarters. https://lnkd.in/eBNhapw #supportdontpunish
