Take Action: It's Time to Decriminalize Drugs in D.C.

For far too long, drugs have been used to criminalize Black and Brown communities and people experiencing poverty in D.C. Even with overdose deaths at a record high, thousands of people are getting arrested every year for drug use and possession instead of the health and support services communities need to save lives.

It's time to end these arrests and replace criminalization with care. An overwhelming majority of D.C. voters agree. Now it’s time to make D.C. Council act.

Help us do it: tell your Councilmembers to introduce legislation that would decriminalize drug possession and invest in health, overdose prevention, and harm reduction services instead of punishment.
