Interfaith prayer service affirms dignity of all

An Interfaith Prayer Service to promote justice and treatment for people living with drug and alcohol dependency was held on June 19 at the State Library of NSW.

Religious leaders across a range of different faiths, including Imam Mahmoud Alazhari from the Australian National Imams Council (pictured), united for a common purpose and extended their compassion and support.

Drug policy and treatment is being reconsidered across Australia and around the world. Consequently, this service was a timely opportunity to affirm the inherent dignity and value of all people. See https://www.fairtreatment.org/
