Event description

Description

Addiction, overdose deaths, crime, incarceration - these have a collective negative effect on every Mississippian.

Could we cut those harms in half?

Come enjoy a shared meal on us, a 30-minute presentation, and a guided discussion exploring ending our criminal approach to drugs and shifting to a health-centered approach. We'll explore what that world could look like and how we could get there.

Open to anyone willing to engage with respect. Our goal is to lay aside fear and have honest, open dialogue exploring a better way forward with drugs.

Over 300 Mississippians have already come to similar discussions in other parts of the state. Previous discussions have been attended by elected officials, law enforcement, judges, foster parents, family members of incarcerated people, prosecutors, public defenders, family members who lost a loved one to an overdose, therapists, attorneys, doctors, business owners, people in recovery, people on the left, people on the right, people of all different economic backgrounds and many different religious affiliations.

The diversity of experiences and perspectives is powerful!

It's an event you won't soon forget. Join us.
