The purpose of this course is to bring about a new form of drug education that aims to promote awareness on the impact punitive drug policies have in the United States and outside its borders. We will discuss the racial origins of the War on Drugs, and its impact on public health, mass incarceration, poverty, violence, education, and migration.
Through this course, we hope to expand the conversation to include the stories of impacted populations, the intersectionality of current social movements, and why we need to address the War on Drugs as a human rights issue. Each week we will host students, campus organizations, community leaders, policy researchers, and activists who are collaborating to end the Drug War.
