Whats your story?
How has your life been impacted by drug policies? Have you or someone close to you been arrested and imprisoned for possessing drugs? Have you or anyone you know been denied education or employment opportunities because of a drug conviction? Have you found yourself engaging in high risk behaviours because of the fear of being arrested? Have you experienced human rights violations when being detained for drugs offences?
Youth RISE is collecting stories of how young peoples development is impacted by the criminalisation of drugs and through punitive drug policies. We will be sharing these stories via our website to support an upcoming campaign challenging the criminalisation of young people who use drugs.
If you would like to contribute your story or the story of someone you know, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for more information. The stories can be submitted anonymously and any names can be changed if requested.
