Dear Members, Participants and Friends
We hope you and your families are safe and managing the global situation as best as you can. Between the continued spread and progression of the global novel coronavirus –with its impacts on our daily lives due to social distancing requirements and economicfactors–as well as the social unrest and activism sparked by racism and injustice in the U.S.that has now spread globally, it is clear that we are all living through an important moment in history that will likely have profound impacts on all of us and our communities. Many of you are using this moment to engage in new research and activism, and as a society we look forward to seeing the fruits of those laborsas they pertain to the study of drug policy. We have been very saddened to have to cancel the ISSDP conference this year(details below)and missthe opportunityto connect and catch up face to face. To help fill that gapthe ISSDP board has come up with a few opportunities for us of us to re-engage, albeit virtually, in the coming months.
