Who We Are

We represent a grass roots network of students and allies working towards meaningful drug policy reform grounded in evidence, compassion and human rights.  
SSDP Australia recognises that the legacy of our current drug laws are steeped in historical racism and prejudice and the harms of drug use and of prohibition tend to affect already disadvantaged and marginalised groups disproportionately.  
We are committed to challenging the stigma of drug use and creating an inclusive environment that welcomes the participation of all people regardless of race, gender, sex, sexual orientation, political persuasion, religious or spiritual beliefs, disability, blood borne virus status, criminal record, age, parenting or caring status and psychoactive substance preference.
