Screening of 'Half A Million Steps'

  • Friday, November 22 at Crookwell Uniting Church on Goulburn Street from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.

In October 2018, as part of the Fair Treatment drug law reform campaign, 100 supporters walked 500,000 steps from Dubbo to deliver a message to the NSW Parliament in Sydney, to highlight how far a person in regional NSW may have to travel to reach the drug treatment they need. The Long Walk to Treatment has now been made into a powerful and moving documentary telling the personal stories of people behind a movement to reform drug laws and policy and to make treatment available to all.
