Following Melissa’s success leading the Decriminalize Nature DC campaign and the passing of Initiative 81, Psychedelic Medicine Coalition is working closely with the Council of the District of Columbia, the Mayor’s Office, the Metropolitan Police Department, and the Office of the Attorney General to ensure proper implementation of the psychedelic policy.
We work directly with members of the Executive branch on legislation, policy, and information.
For too long, the narrative around psychedelics was inaccurate and misleading. We talk to members of Congress about the real benefit of psychedelics and how their action can spread healing across the nation.
We connect the thought leaders across the psychedelic space. One of our main goals is to create a unified voice that helps to educate political decision makers on the reality of psychedelics.
PMC has also started working with area universities to create a pipeline for diverse leaders in the psychedelic space. By creating educational pathways that promote psychedelic medicine, PMC is looking to create the next generation of social workers, therapists, and advocates.
State and Local
Due to varied needs and legal frameworks, Psychedelic Medicine Coalition understands there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to passing psychedelic medicine reform in State and local jurisdictions. We draw on our experience, expertise, and broad networks across the country to use an analytical approach to support reforms around psychedelic medicines.
Meet and Greets
We aim to connect leaders in the psychedelic space with each other and individuals looking to learn more. To enact change, we need to unite the individuals working toward a common goal.
Testifying at Hearings
To change legislation, we need to change the perception of psychedelics. Part of that quest involves testifying at hearings to ensure the narrative around psychedelics is accurate and evidence based.
Submit Appropriation Requests
We work with lawmakers to ensure programs, services, and care have funding—and if they don’t, we work where to source appropriate funding. Healthcare costs are a top concern facing psychedelics, and we’re working to remove that barrier.
Work on Legislation
We work directly with lawmakers on the language and intent of new legislation. We focus on providing healing to more people and making sure each group has fair representation.
