About The Event
Psychedelic Professionals Meetup Groups are in Boulder, Denver, Fort Collins, and Pikes Peak Region! Let's keep Colorado on the leading edge of psychedelic medicine work by coming together in community to learn, share, and grow. Each Psychedelic Professionals Meetup Group starts with an informative topic relevant to research, practice, policy, or activism around psychedelic medicines, followed by open discussion and an opportunity to connect with like-minded others.
For our July meetup, we are excited to welcome Peter Criscione, Field Coordinator from Denver’s 301 and active member of our own local community who will present “A Tale of Two Initiatives: How we got here, where we are, and where we are going”. Peter will share his insights as both a participant in and witness to the behind-the-scenes process, language development and impacts of both 61 and 58. We will address some key questions to help inform the choices set before the community in this very important phase in Colorado’s psychedelic development and how these choices could impact you.
Peter has been an active member of the Denver movement for several years now. He served as Field Coordinator on the 301 Denver Psilocybin Decriminalization initiative in 2019 and contributed both to the Mycoalition community discussion process this past year and its Responsible Reform Council. He also contributed to the discussion and language in the Decriminalize Colorado initiative (61) and took on the task of conducting a deep analysis of the New Approach initiative (58) language. He has a background in electrical engineering and English, over a decade of experience in technical writing and critical analysis, and was Managing Editor for a publication in the energy field for seven years. He works as a Research and Data Analysis Consultant and volunteers with various efforts to improve community.
Suggested donation of $10, payable at the door. Door fee goes directly toward paying for the venue rental.
