The Drug Policy Reform Working Group of the Justice Roundtable is an active collaboration that works to eliminate drug criminalization and promote public health approaches to drug use, including policies that are grounded in racial equity, advance drug user health, and protect the humanity and dignity of people impacted by the war on drugs. An overarching goal of the working group is to advance harm reduction and other evidence-based care interventions that facilitate broader political support for divesting from punitive approaches to drugs. The working group strives to center in its federal advocacy efforts the voices of people directly impacted by punitive approaches to drugs.
