UNG group spearheads awareness campaign for Medical Amnesty Law

“Jeremy Sharp is one of the hardest working young men and advocate for sensible drug policy I think I have ever met.” said Sharon Ravert of Peachtree NORML. “NORML works with students across the state to advocate for change in drug policy and are proud to have a strong relationship with SSDP (Students for Sensible Drug Policy).” Ravert continues “We strive to keep a student from SSDP on the board of Peachtree NORML and will continue to mentor young people as we work along side of them on our common quest for change in Georgia. We work together for comprehensive criminal justice reform that implements harm reduction strategies, enhances public safety and saves millions of taxpayer dollars.”

We couldn’t be more proud of SSDP at the University of North Georgia. They were integral in getting the law passed and continue to educate citizens about its passing and what it all means. This is a life saving bill and we hear about it as first responders share the stories of saving lives across our state. Jeremy and his team worked very closely with Atlanta Harm Reduction Coalition, North Carolina Harm Reduction Coalition, Robert Childs, Mona Bennett and the strong courageous families that have come forward to help others not to suffer the same pain they had to endure when they lost their son or daughter or loved one to a drug overdose. A difference is being made and I would like to encourage you to help spread the word. We are saving lives and promoting healing withing the communities that choose harm reduction. Join us.
