We Want Fair Treatment
We all want to live in a world where everyone is treated with dignity and respect, including people who use drugs, where we have drug laws informed by best practice and evidence and where treatment is available for all those who seek it. It is time for our political leaders to set aside their ideology, listen to the evidence, and modernise our laws.
What is Fair Treatment?
Formed by the Uniting Church NSW/ACT and Uniting in 2018, the campaign and now includes more than 70 partner organisations.
We all want to live in a world where everyone is treated with dignity and respect, including people who use drugs.
To achieve this, we need increased access to treatment services, especially in rural and regional areas, and introduce a compassionate, health and wellbeing-based response to drug dependency.
Stand with us and together we can make this a reality.
