Drug Law Reform – Information

At its meeting in April this year the Synod supported two resolutions on drug law reform concerning the personal use of illicit drugs. Uniting is leading a working group with input from the wider church, including the Social Justice Forum, to give effect to Synod’s decision.

The Synod Social Justice Forum has prepared a range of material on the initiative including a two page update for Uniting Church members and congregations, a common questions document that responds to questions about the initiative raised at, and since, the Synod meeting, a theological statement on our response to the personal use of illicit drugs, and a one page summary of the benefits of changing the way we respond to the personal use of illicit drugs.

A copy of each of these documents is available on the stewards table or email Sue in our office and she will send them to you.
