International Drug Users Remembrance Day Memorial Event

On International Drug Users Remembrance Day, we take time to remember the people whose lives were unjustly cut short due to the criminalisation and stigmatisation of people who use drugs. To us, they were more than a casualty; they were our family, friends, peers and loved ones.

This year’s memorial ceremony will be held on Friday July 19 1.00- 2.00 at Lawrence Hargrave Park, Potts Point.

There will be speakers, music, written messages and light refreshments provided. In case of wet weather the event will be moved to Wayside Chapel.

Speakers this year include:

  • Dr Alex Wodak
  • Dr Marianne Jauncey
  • Ms Rebecca Martin (City of Sydney)

Everyone is welcome.
