NAPW conference partner and Lynn Paltrow, ED, speaker at DPA International Drug Policy Reform Conference
From October 23-26, 2013, the Drug Policy Alliance will host the International Drug Policy Reform Conference in Denver, Colorado. NAPW is a 2013 conference partner, and Executive Director, Lynn Paltrow, is a DPA funded partner scholarship recipient and will moderate a roundtable panel entitled, "Overlooked Punishment: The Drug War's Insidious Reach Beyond the Criminal Justice System." This panel will foster a discussion about the use of the child welfare system to expand the war on drugs between Lynn Paltrow, Emma Ketteringham (Managing Attorney, Bronx Defenders), Sara Arnold (writer/advocate), Jess Cochrane (Northeastern University JD/MPH student), and others.
The Reform Conference exists as a space for people who believe the war on drugs does more harm than good to gather, build bridges, strategize, and mobilize around drug policy and for reform. Please visit the conference website for more information.
