You can still help send students to SSDP's conference!

In a little over 1 week, Students for Sensible Drug Policy will host it's biggest and most impressive conference to date. Will you help students from all around the world make it out?

Let's face it. College students are broke. That's why SSDP has set up a scholarship fund to help cover the costs of travel and lodging for students to make it out to San Francisco on March 12. So far, we've granted scholarships to nearly 200 students who otherwise wouldn't be able to attend. Students like:
  • Levent Akubult who has spawned SSDP's first UK chapter network
  • 10 students from the University of Utah who are working on a statewide Good Samaritan Policy
  • Miguel Garcia from the University of Texas Pan American, a school located on the border between the U.S. and drug war ravaged Mexico
  • 6 members of the Northern Virgina Community College SSDP chapter
  • Many more! 
As you can see, these scholarships are here to help some of the best and brightest students from around the world attend this amazing conference when they otherwise would not have been able to.  From March 12-14, these students will learn the skills to build a strong SSDP chapter and bring an end the failed war on drugs.

And don't just take our word for it! You can hear from SSDP chapters and students themselves just how important your donation is to ensuring that they make it out to the conference. Watch here.

Donate whatever you can today and let's get even more students out to SSDP's 11th Annual Conference!
