"Progress not Prisons": Canadian Students for Sensible Drug Policy National Conference 2012

Calgary, Alberta
March 2-4, 2012

The place to connect for young people, activists, researchers, service providers and others looking to change drug policies in canada and around the world

Join us at Canada's only national drug policy reform conference! Join students, young people, researchers, social workers, policy makers, activists, academics, curious onlookers, and more for an exciting weekend! The conference will feature panel discussions on pressing topics in drug policy, interactive workshops, student research presentations, chances to hang out with inspiring people, and more.  As Canada continues to increase the role of prisons and punishment in our society, we will come together to ask what 'progress' means for the current Canadian drug policy movement.

Youth and students interested in presenting can be a part of the conference.  Travel scholarships are available for youth and students.
