Event description

Description

In October 2018, as part of the Fair Treatment campaign, 100 people walked the 500,000 steps from Dubbo, in Western NSW, to deliver a message to NSW Parliament in Sydney – highlighting how far a person in regional NSW may have to travel to reach the drug treatment they need.

This Long Walk to Treatment has now been made into a powerful and moving documentary telling the personal stories behind a movement to reform drug laws and policy and make treatment available to all.

The people of Parramatta Mission are featured in this documentary and it was one of the stops on the Long Walk to Treatment.

Join us for a community screening of Half a Million Steps and for a special panel discussion on this issue which affects so many Australians every year. On the panel, CEO of Parramatta Mission, Rev Keith Hamilton will be joined by Dr Marianne Jauncey, Medical Director of Uniting’s Medically Supervised Injecting Centre in Kings Cross, and members of the local community with lived experience of this issue to answer your questions.

Refreshments provided. For more information, contact Alex Hogan (ahogan@uniting.org) or Amelia Pereira (amelia.pereira@parramattamission.org.au).
