UNGASS International Delegation Tour – Chicago

ChicagoEvents

The Katal Center for Health, Equity, and Justice is working with the Open Society Foundations and the Illinois Consoritum on Drug Policy, Roosevelt University as well as Workers Center for Racial Justice and Trinity Church Chicago to bring an international delegation to the U.S. to meet with local groups and community members to discuss local, national, and international drug policies. Because the war on drugs in communities in the U.S. is connected to the war on drugs in communities in other parts of the world, the Delegation presents an opportunity to build connections across geographies and cultures, cultivate solidarity, and spur both local interest and local press related to the UNGASS.
