The war on drugs has been devastating to families across the globe. We urgently need a new approach.
We are a group of families from all over the world whose lives have been wrecked by the drug war and are now campaigning for change.
Our politicians tell us that our drug policies are protecting us. They aren’t.
We know that our drug laws are causing even more damage than the drugs themselves.
We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity for change this April 2016, when the United Nations General Assembly meets to discuss the world drug problem.
Families from around the world are going to the UN to tell our leaders face-to-face that their drug policies are killing our children.
We are losing our loved ones to the drug war. Come and hear our stories to discover how to better protect our children.
Please join us at the UN and show your support for change.
