Props to Brown University

What a weekend!

Dan Macombie, Trevor Stutz, Matthew Palvesky, Julia Van De Wall and all the dedicated members of Brown University's SSDP chapter put together an incredible Northeast Regional Conference this past weekend.

The conference gained press in the Providence Journal focusing on former RI Senator Lincoln Chaffee's discussion Friday evening on the need to reexamine the Drug War. Senator Chaffee spoke out in opposition to the HEA Aid Elimination Penalty, mandatory minimum sentencing, and RI Governor Don Carcieri's veto of the state's Medical Marijuana Bill.

Everything from the delicious food to the interactive and fun workshops like "Telling the Truth in 30 Seconds" was put together flawlessly. Brown SSDP raised the bar for future regional conferences.

Next stop: New Orleans.
