international speakers, cutting-edge ideas
and stimulating conversations to our city.
Uniting has come together with our partners, the Alcohol Tobacco and Other Drug Association ACT (ATODA) and ANU-College of Arts and Social Sciences in Canberra to create this ongoing lecture/discussion series.
Film highlights from Uniting’s recent event with Dr Manuel Cardoso – the man who helped decriminalise drug use in Portugal – are now available to watch.
On a wet and wintery Tuesday night in Sydney, more than 700 people came to St Stephen’s Uniting Church. Amongst them were media, politicians and VIPs. A further 5,000 people tuned in to watch online.
The event marked the ‘soft launch’ of Uniting’s campaign to modernise drug laws across New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory.
