REFORMER'S CALENDAR BACK IN ACTION: The following is a listing of a few important events coming up. This listing is by no means complete, and if you don't see your event here, we probably didn't know about it. We are restarting the Reformer's Calendar after a hiatus, and we need your help! Please send us listings of events large and events small. We publish mainly events relating to drug policy, but also occasional relating to other justice issues as well as AIDS, human rights, privacy and other concerns that intersect with drug policy. Please e-mail your submissions to [email protected].
