Psychedelic Activism // Visions of Liberation
During this session, we will hold space for our community, tocome together, share, discuss, and develop a collective vision of their ideal post-prohibitionist world. Participants of this exercise will explore a variety of topics, from honest drug education to decolonization, as we co-create our vision. groups. We will conclude the session with a reflection on the differences that we saw in the visions shared and the ways that we could better align ourselves on what it is we’re trying to create rather than the thing we’re trying to end.
