The Role of Sociology
A recent New York Times article by Neil Irwin asks the question, " What if sociologist had as much influence as ecnomist?". Irwin addresses the complexity of contending with social problems and discusses Evicted, a book authored by Matthew Desmond, a SSSP member. For a pdf of the article click here.

March for Science - Drug Policy Contingent
The Drug Policy Alliance's Office of Academic Engagement (OAE) is excited to be organizing a contingent for the national March for Science. The March will take place on April 22, 2017 at 11 AM in Washington DC. We are convening researchers, academics, advocates and people with lived experience to stand alongside us as we make the case for evidence based drug policy, treatment, and harm reduction programs. I hope you can share this information with CDUHR and colleagues at your institutions.
We will be offering free round trip transportation to the event between NYC and DC, but space is limited. The bus will leave from midtown promptly at 6:00 AM and return that evening around 9:30-10:00 PM. You can reserve a spot here.
If you’d like to meet us in DC, we will be gathering at 1620 I St NW #925, Washington, DC 20006 at 11 AM and making our way to the March. A flyer with more information is available here , and you can keep up to date on event logistics at our Facebook Page. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to .
We believe that evidence based drug policy and research is needed more now than ever. For decades our drug policies have been driven by ideology, stigma, racism, fear and politics with too little reliance on research about what is effective. With the election of Donald Trump and his Administration’s disavowal of science and facts, we are concerned that the divide between evidence and policy will only grow deeper. We hope you’ll join us to make the case that our drug policy and programs need to be driven by evidence about what works.
We hope to see you on April 22nd!
