#DecrimDoneRight is a civil society platform based on evidence and rooted in public health and human rights approaches to drug policy. It is a product of collaboration from legal, human rights, public health sectors and informed by the expertise of people who use drugs.
The war on drugs has not only fed policing and prisons in this country, it has had devastating effects on our families. Black and Indigenous mothers in particular have seen their children taken into the child welfare system, causing generational trauma. Schools, hospitals, and even our homes have become sites of violent policing which has done nothing to address trauma, to heal, or to help people who want treatment for addictions.
