Kassandra Frederique, DPA’s New Executive Director, Shares Her Message to the Movement

I’m stepping into this moment with the understanding that to expose and extinguish the drug war we must redefine it.

…we are going to emphasize this interconnection, shining a light on the drug-related policies that hold us all down while doing the fundamental work to lift us all up.

In this fight, it is our duty to reimagine policies, push forth logic grounded in truth, and create pathways that serve as enablers to the actualization of full participation.

If this year has taught me anything it’s that a fight for an ending can feel endless; that is why I want us to fight for an ever after — one that is limitless in possibility.
