Knowledge is empowerment.
We are public policy reformers, medical professionals, and educators who help drug users and their communities make more informed choices -- because drug use is risky enough.
My name is Mikayla, and I have 9 years of experience helping individuals, organizations, and event promoters reduce risks associated with drug use. In college, I became a chapter leader with Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) where I learned how to educate and organize my peers around changing failed drug laws. After graduating from the University of Maryland, my extracurricular advocacy turned into a career. I now work for a public policy reform nonprofit that promotes police accountability, alternatives to arrest and incarceration, and evidence-based drug policies. Holding a director position, I manage the activities of over 250 volunteers and produce much of our internal educational content and legislative testimonies. I live in Washington, DC, but my love of drug education takes me everywhere.
