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.
Parramatta Mission is featured in this documentary and was one of the stops on the Long Walk to Treatment.
Join us for a special community screening of Half a Million Steps and for a panel discussion on an issue facing so many Australians every year.
Refreshments provided. For more information, contact Alex Hogan (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Amelia Pereira (email@example.com).
