Gathered: let’s talk about drugs
2 Aug 2018
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Epping Uniting Church
In 2016 our Church took a position on drug law reform. It committed to advocate for more money going into drug treatment and harm reduction strategies and to work to decriminalise the personal possession and use of small amounts of illicit drugs.
Uniting is now leading a campaign on behalf of the Synod and we want to know what young adults in the Church think about this issue.
- What does decriminalisation and harm reduction really mean?
- Why has the Church taken a position on this?
- Why should personal drug use be treated as a health and social issue, not a criminal one?
- What does it mean to be a Christian and a supporter of drug law reform?
Have your thoughts heard and your questions answered as we share dinner and welcome invited guests to the conversation who will speak about the issue and why change is needed in this space. We’ll also hear more about the Uniting campaign, why the Uniting Church took a position on this issue and explore the theology behind it.
