Disability and Drug Policy

From Allegra Stout ’12:


Join activist Jesse Stout for a discussion of the intersecting movements for drug policy reform and disability rights. Jesse will draw from his experience as executive director of the Rhode Island Patient Advocacy Coalition (RIPAC), Rhode Island’s non-profit grassroots community of patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals, and advocacy organizations supporting and implementing the RI Medical Marijuana Act; as a member of the Board of Directors of Students for Sensible Drug Policy; and as a co-chair of the Drug Policy Committee of the National Lawyers Guild, to give an inside look at the drug policy movement and its importance for people with disabilities. A question and answer period will follow.

FREE BRUNCH will be provided!

Brought to you by Students for Sensible Drug Policy and Wesleyan Students for Disability Rights, with generous support from the Adelphic Educational Fund and Student Activities and Leadership Development.
