August 4, 2008—On Thursday, August 14, at 11 a.m., Second LifeTM Time, Drug Policy Alliance Network, the United States’ leading organization dedicated to ending the war on drugs, will make its virtual debut with a staff meet-and-greet on the Nonprofit Commons Aloft simulator.
When: Thursday, August 14, 11 a.m. SLT – 1 p.m. SLT
Where: Plush Nonprofit Commons Cafe (Plush Nonprofit Commons – 165, 241, 26)
Second Life URL: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Plush%20Nonprofit%20Commons/165/241/26
Second LifeTM resident Camdyn Collins will host the event, which will include several DPA Network employees. As the first of what will hopefully be several events planned throughout the year, the initial gathering is geared toward answering any questions Second LifeTM residents may have about DPA Network and its mission.
Immediately following the meet-and-greet with DPA Network staff members, residents will stay at the cafe and attend an afterparty, which will include a performance by celebrity Second LifeTM DJ, Azufr3 Catteneo (www.azucatteneo.com). During the afterparty, random DPA Network themed prizes will be given away to attendees and residents will be able to interact with other drug policy reform supporters.
A donation box for DPA Network will be present at the event, as well as other DPA Network-produced literature, drug fact information, and instructions on ways to take action offline against the war on drugs. Because donations to the Drug Policy Alliance Network are used in part for lobbying and grassroots activism, they are not tax-deductible.
