Red Carpet Screening: Half a Million Steps
October 29, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
In October 2018, as part of Uniting’s 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, breaking the cycle of entrenched poverty that often sits alongside drug addiction.
This is a free public screening, with refreshments available from 6pm, screening at 6:45pm and a short Q&A session to follow.
