To our loving, complex, and unapologetic community:
Today, I assume the role of Executive Director for the Drug Policy Alliance. It’s actually quite incredible to write those words. I never imagined when I started at DPA in 2009 that I would get to learn from incredible visionaries at DPA like Ethan, Deborah, asha, Roseanne, Jasmine, and gabriel. I’ve been honored to be at DPA for eleven years as we redefined policy, advocacy, and organizing. Together we’ve played a pivotal role in transforming the national conversation about drug policy. This is an organization I undoubtedly love — and it is an organization that needs to grow.
