This first issue of The Activist Guide monthly was produced in an extreme rush to be ready in time for the Harvard Drug Conference/debate, Crime, Drugs, Health & Prohibition II, this May 21. There wasn't time to get all the typos out, or all the details right, but there is a wealth of useful information here that activists can use as a guide to getting more involved in the struggle for a better drug policy and criminal justice system.
The Activist Guide is available by subscription for $18/year ($12 before July 1). DRCNet's rapid-response team is available to activists who wish to get timely updates on very urgent issues. To join the rapid-response team, please send your name address, and preferred means of contact, including phone#, fax# and/or email address, with a $10 contribution to:
