What’s Happening with the CA Decriminalization Bill?
Community Learning from the Advocacy Front Lines:
The legislative process is notoriously archaic and complex, yet understanding it is crucial to support and advocate for effective drug policy reform. Join community advocates and allies in a dynamic discussion to demystify SB519, a bill to decriminalize the personal use of some psychedelics currently going through the California state legislature. This panel will cover the origins of the bill, the negotiations and compromises that have been made throughout, and future prospects – whether or not it is passed into law. The bill was recently paused until next year, so we’ll also discuss lessons learned and what to prepare for when the session continues in 2022. Particular attention will be paid to providing clarity around community concerns in a moderated Q&A. Bring your questions!
Hosted by Chacruna Institute, San Francisco Psychedelic Society, Oakland Hyphae, and SPORE. Speakers will include Ismail Ali, David Bronner, Reggie Harris, and Monica Cadena.
(Wednesday) 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM PST
