The next Wednesday Forum session on the Foreign Policy Association’s Great Decisions 2022 program will focus on Drug Policy in Latin America. The session will begin with a short film, followed by discussion led by Richard Wildermuth.

The Foreign Policy Association gives the following description of the topic: 

The issue of migration to the United States from Latin America has overshadowed the war on drugs, which has been underway for decades with little signs of progress. What are the roots and the bureaucratic logic behind today´s dominant drug policies in Latin America? Is it time to reconsider punitive drug control policies that disrupt supply chains and punish drug possession?

If you would like to receive notices and the Zoom link, you can either join the group at UUC Connect or contact the church office. Great Decisions 2022 booklets with background information on each topic are available for purchase and direct shipping from the Foreign Policy Association. An ebook version is also available. Participation is possible without a booklet, since the topics have all been in the limelight.
