Who cares? mumsDU!
mumsDU-moms united and mandated to saving the lives of Drug Users

We are moms who have lost a child to substance use, who are traveling across Canada to share our story of the real cost of the 'War on Drugs', our children.

From Victoria, BC to Charlottetown, PEI, and anywhere in-between who will have us, we will beat down the stigma and the shame and tell it like it really is. In revealing our collective experiences we will free others to speak up and shout out to our policy makers that 'we aren’t going to take it anymore'.

Supporting us ensures your opinion is also a part of the discussions taking place around the United Nations General Assembly Special Session [UNGASS] on World Drug Policy, New York, April 19th -21st, 2016. We will be there demonstrating what Canadians really want in our Drug Policy.

Help us Help you by donating what you can to this cause. 

Thank you from us moms - Donna May, Leslie Mcbain, Jennifer Woodside, Petra Schulz and Lorna Thomas

We are moms who have lost a child to substance use who are traveling across Canada to speak to the real cost of the "War on Drugs", our children.

We know, to well, that it could be anyones child and that no family is immune to the affect substance use can have on it. We have been there.

Your donation, big or small, goes a long way to help spread our stories of how our Canadian Drug Policies failed to keep our child, who was a substance user, alive while we navigated our antiquated and ineffective healthcare and social systems for assistance that was truly of benefit.

Ensure that our stories are not repeated in your community or in your home by helping us deliver real and effective solutions for drug policy reform that benefits all Canadians.

Help us to save the life of someones child.

We are off and running. Charlottetown, PEI and Toronto, ON are hosting us in September.
Help us help our children from needless substance use deaths by donating to this cause.
We are advocating to enable health and social practices that actually work to save the lives of substance users.
Nothing is learned in silence, so... lets have the real talk about drugs. Because, it could be anyone's child. Including yours.

Hi all, I do think you are on the right track here. This is a topic that is near to my heart. I am wondering though, if there is more information on what you are doing? For example; exactly what changes are you asking for? What can the governments do to really make a difference? Do you all feel that 'harm reduction' is a cop-out and a cheap way to deal with such heart breaking dire family situations? I'm very interested to know more of your plan. Thank you.

Forever grateful for the advocacy work you have initiated and sustained. I am so sorry to have met you due to similar circumstances, as I lost a son from an overdose due to Heroin tainted with Fentanyl on January 27, 2016 in Kamloops, B.C.
