Since distributing our Reformer's Calendar last month, members and others
have sent us quite a few new listings, mainly for events in Washington,
DC, but also in Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Hawaii and elsewhere, covering
topics ranging from mandatory minimums to methadone to harm reduction to
women in prison and more. Some of them are coming right up, so if you're
interested, take a look at it now at http://www.drcnet.org/calendarnew.html.
(Normally the filename is calendar.html, but this has been changed temporarily
due to a brief technical problem.)
Some of our friends sent us listings for events that came and went during
the time between the last calendar and this one. We like to be able to
get these listings in time to get people to your events, but aren't always
able to update the calendar every week. The moral of the story is: send
in your listing as soon as you have the information available. This will
maximize the chances that we'll be able to get the information out to our
DRCNet's isn't the only drug policy calendar on the net. The National
Drug Strategy Network has one online at http://www.ndsn.org/CALENDAR.html.
The Legalize! group has one at http://www.legalize-usa.org/events.htm.
The Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse has a health/service oriented calendar
Please send us info on other online calendars you've seen.
