Sensible Minnesota Allies with Students for Sensible Drug Policy

Minneapolis, MN:  In September, Sensible Minnesota approved a Memorandum of Understanding to work with Students for Sensible Drug Policy (“SSDP”) chapters in Minnesota. The two organizations have outlined objectives for the collaboration, including increasing Sensible Minnesota’s capacity for research-related policy work and expanding SSDP’s reach to 4-5 new campuses in Minnesota.

 

Gunnar Aas, Sensible Minnesota’s SSDP liaison, oversees and executes this collaboration. Gunnar Aas is a drug policy activist from Duluth, Minnesota. He has worked as a campus organizer for Students for Sensible Drug Policy, to bring young people and students into the movement for a post-prohibition age, and has enlightened his communities on the immense benefits of sensible policies. He is currently studying at Hamline University in Saint Paul, MN, and majors in Political Science and Social Justice.

 

Questions about the collaboration can be directed to Maren Schroeder, Sensible Minnesota’s President: maren@sensible.mn. If you are interested in learning more about SSDP and what it can do for you on your campus, please email Gunnar Aas, Sensible Minnesota’s SSDP liaison: gunnar@sensible.mn.
