Brooklyn, NY, US
VOCAL-NY is looking for highly motivated activists who are ready to join the resistance! All leaders will join us in launching our biggest campaign yet: End The War On Drugs. The War on Drugs has created enormous barriers to housing, healthcare, employment and other basic rights for low-income people who are active or former drug users, while also increasing their risk for overdose, Hepatitis C, HIV/AIDs and other health problems. Despite relatively equal rates of drug use across race and ethnicity, people of color are disproportionately targeted for enforcement activities such as police harassment, arrest, and incarceration. VOCAL-NY and it’s members are ready to mobilize and resist the 45th President in order to preserve past victories, and continue to moving forward against the War on Drugs.
