The 920 Coalition is a collaboration of non-profit organizations and individuals organizing events around the world on 9/20/2015 to bring attention to the role of psilocybin mushrooms in our society and health care system. 920coalition.org

We invite you to join us for a discussion on how psilocybin interacts with the brain and how this profound medicine can contribute to the psychological well being of self and society. We'll be discussing the potential uses of the compound from a variety of perspectives with two guest speakers and a screening of the documentary "Little Saints!". LittleSaintsMovie.com

Little Saints is a documentary following six men and women from the United States who, along with Director Oliver Quintanilla, travel to Mexico to meet an extraordinary woman and take part of an ancient ritual of psychological and physical healing. Along with their story, the film includes interviews with scientists and researchers who share their knowledge of psychedelic medicines, Mazatec traditions, and current efforts to bring this medicine to the world community.

Psilocybin is a profound medicine for mental and spiritual ailments of all kinds. Research is continuously showing that it is effective in reducing anxiety and depression, while also having the capacity to occasion experiences of deep meaning and significance best described as "mystical". We hope to see you at the first ever 9/20 collective day of action. Let’s push forward the conversation on drug policy, mental health and the unavoidable relation between them while confronting the stigma surrounding psilocybin!
